Escape from Affluenza is a 1998 PBS 56-minute documentary film produced as a sequel to the 1997 documentary Affluenza. While the original concentrates on affluenza--consumerism and materialism in modern society, the sequel focuses on how to avoid this.[1] It looks at stories of how to reduce debt, stress, time-pressure, and possession-overload.[2]

The cast includes Wanda Urbanska as the host and Cecile Andrews, author of "Circle of Simplicity".[3]
