For the authenticity and for the logic of these effects and influences, the historical proverb " the poor always imitate the rich" shows even within the country and even with the society of a country, this seems true because in every society whether it is Muslim or non Muslim, the trend of imitating the rich by the poor is found. So, at broad level, the influences and effects of one country spreads in the other countries that were indulging in trade or have common boundary and even due to globalization, these influences are prevailing day by day. In short, in this article, brief study is presented to show the influences of Western consumerism.
