You are painting too broad of a brush stroke
There's plenty of wiggle room in your argument regarding 'buying cheap', and for buyers of HDMI cables too.
One can certainly buy a 6 foot, $3 cable and have good success, regardless of whether it has the 'magical' mandatory micron connector thickness you allude to. If that same person feels the need to shell out $100 for Monster cables to feel like they are necessarily getting some sort of added value with their purchase, I say let them. Even better, I challenge most people to take a blind test to see if they can notice anything distinguishable between several HDMI cable brands of different quality/prices.
FWIW, I've only had one or two of the very cheapest generic cables cause obvious issues (if this is what is meant by "fail"). Never have I had anything from Monoprice, Amazon basic or BlueJeans cable perform anything other than adequately.
Your implication that rich folks need to somehow act in a different way to stimulate the economy somehow is fantasy fueled at best, amigo. I'll only agree with you about the importance of buying good beer(!) [my own kryptonite]
