——————————————

Many critics seem to resent advertisers because they have so much money to throw around. “It is unjust,” they say, “that this entirely unproductive industry should absorb millions of dollars each year. Why don’t they stop advertising and reduce the price of their goods? After all, it is the consumer who pays…”

The poor old consumer! He’d have to pay a great deal more if advertising didn’t create mass markets for products. It is precisely because of the heavy advertising that consumer goods are so cheap. We must not forget that advertising makes a positive contribution to our pockets. Newspapers, commercial radio and television companies could not subsist without this source of revenue. Thus, if we pay so little for our daily newspaper, or enjoy so many broadcast programs, this is due to the money spent by advertisers.

Moreover, it is pointless to say that the only purpose of advertising is to sell goods. However, another equally important function is to inform. For instance, one can find a job, buy or sell a house, announce a birth, marriage or death thanks to ads.
