Harrison - try searching with this subject heading Teenage consumers - you get a lot of interesting articles. - Ms. Tamarkin

When I think of economics I think of society and how people work together to make the economy of one country the best. I feel that advertising affects economics because, people need to buy necessities and so every time someone buys something it is building the economy of one own society. I learned in economics class how to cash and check, how to strategist when buying and how advertising works and sometimes fools us. I still have one question on how advertising works around the world internationally and how it affects people of different cultures.

Introduction :

Brand names have been shaping our society and civilization for years. Brand name companies have for years thought of new ways to spend less and gain more. Now in present day brand name companies even use cheap labor to create their famous products all over the world. For a company to gain fame not only do their product have to have good quality but the company has to have and create an image themselves using advertising to make their brand into a household name thus making it look more like a way of life then a company.

Branding is used to advertise different and various products all over the world. Branding takes a product and makes it seem better because, of the brand name it was given or because of the company name. Like for example, Nike is a household name that everyone knows and even though they might sell various products they are sometimes more expensive because of the brand name.
