Vicious Cycle

Do you realize how much advertising comes into your home? Check out the Sunday newspaper. If you remove the advertising, there is hardly anything left.

Examine the magazines you receive. They contain mostly advertising.

Television is the same. Remove the advertising and a one hour program shrinks to less than forty minutes.

Ads are expensive, too. They cost a lot of money. How can companies afford all these expensive ads? They do this by jacking up the prices of the goods and services we buy. We pay for the ads at the checkout line.

Why don't companies stop advertising and reduce the price? Are they afraid you won't buy their product? They figure you buy it because it is advertised.

So, the vicious cycle goes on.
