Report: Celeb mags make the well-off feel inadequate

Celebrity magazines such as Hello! are making the middle classes feel bad about themselves and underestimate their own prosperity, according to a report by the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development.

According to the Daily Mail, the OECD report talks of “the Hello! magazine effect” where the public fail to realise how much their own lives have improved because they are distracted by reading “about the super-rich, who are getting muich richer and attracting more media attention”.
