A telephone on the wall rings from time to time. Pick it up and you hear a series of upbeat smooth-spoken voice prompts: “If you want to support economic growth, press 1; If you’re over-indebted, press 2 …” Between telemarketing and consumer psychoanalysis, this telephone labyrinth tells us about our condition as prey and our consumerist pathologies.
