dc.description.abstract This article compares environmental attitudes with materialistic attitudes across the United States, Australia, and Sweden. Two scales were used in the study: the new environmental paradigm (NEP) and Richins and Dawson's Materialistic Survey. The expected negative correlation between environmental and materialistic attitudes was found among all three countries; however, a higher negative correlation was found in Sweden and Australia than in the U.S. The U.S. also, as expected, rated higher on the materialistic scale and lower on the environmental scale than the other two countries. The results are discussed with a concern for more research dealing with the countries' political realm with the environment. en_US
