Some people get into debt by buying things they don't need and can afford. What are the reasons for this behavior? What action can be taken to prevent from having this problem?

In this consumer driven economy, owning redundant possessions is a commonly practiced custom by the human beings. Even in the low income group of people, this is evident. Being up-to-the-minute and status symbol in the pursuit of social contest along with influences of commercials are the major factors behind this norm.

To begin with, current age group is mostly focused towards the upcoming fashion that varies from latest gadgets to hottest outfits. This market group can easily be accessible through social or electronic media as well as online marketplace. Early bird booking of smart phone gadgets like 'Apple Iphone 7' or 'Samsung Galaxy' can be taken as an example where the majority buyers are actually own smart devices already. Moreover, attachment of celebrities with the trendy products also manipulates people from all income groups. For instances , female heroin's are usually seen as a brand ambassador of face whitening cream which easily attracts people from all around the world although mass knows that is not going to help them. Hence, the above makes it clear that sometimes people are exercising needless shopping only they are influenced by friends or relatives or even by social icons.

In order to stem this behavior, I firmly believe that appropriate education from social institutes like, family, school or community center can play a vital role to control this conduct. If juveniles as well as adults can get knowledge of real value of money as well as balanced lifestyle with career goals, then things can improve rapidly. Even, the Government can take initiative like imposing hefty taxes on luxurious products that I believe will positively correlate the less buying of unimportant stuffs.

As a concluding statement, I want to restate that adverse impact of advertisement as well as continuous demand of being fashionable opens the avenue to own less required belongings. To control this behavior, all kinds of social institutes should come forward and educating the society which can act as a catalyst to improve the situation.

Hi, I'd like to comment some tentative phrases.

Your writing is quite clear, but I think you can be slightly changing to informal style (tentative sentences)


all kinds of social institutes should come forward
-> all kinds of social institutes should consider ~~

I firmly believe that
-> It is logical to think that or It is sensible to consider that

Clear essay!

Hi Mehbub, we appreciate you words of acknowledging our work here on EF, we definitely aim at providing you the most accurate and valuable feedback, so you will be able to confidently submit your writing projects and also hone your writing skills as well as develop new writing techniques.

Now, as much as I want to rate your essay base on IELTS standards, I will not be able to, as the IELTS certified verifiers are the only ones who can rate your essay as per their respective standards. What I can assure you though, is that, as per the english language usage standards and how you approach this particular essay, I will give you an 8, 8 out of 10 because, there is still a room for improvement and I know you will be able to enhance your essay further.

Overall, I suggest that you keep on writing, it doesn't need to be a writing project, it can be just a regular writing that you have thought of or a small draft where you write your thoughts. Reading will also help you add and widen your vocabulary and this will give you an edge when it comes to sentence construction.
