Question by : Could the government stimulate consumer demand through advertising?
Since the recovery has been so slow due to low consumer demand, could the government launch a massive advertising campaign (perhaps spending as much as both candidates in the last presidential election) to encourage the American people to spend and invest more (and put off savings) until unemployment has dropped? This campaign would appeal to the patriotism of the public and explain that just a modest increase in spending can bring the economy back (which is true).
Could this work, and wouldn’t it be worthwhile to try, considering how much the government has already spent on stimulus? (The last presidential election cost approximately 2.4 billion dollars.)
SDD: The recession was caused by inadequate financial regulations leading to rampant speculation, not household and government debt. Obviously if everybody agreed to spend a little more (by putting off paying the credit cards down) aggregate demand would rise and unemployment would fall. We’re in a paradox of thrift situation.
Answer by Signora Banchiere
It’s very hard to get people to spend when the country is in recession and people are afraid they might lose their jobs.
The cost of advertising is extremely high (although multi media channels would be happyto provide free/lower cost space for stimulus incentives). In the UK we have political broadcasts and TV programmes like Question Time when politicians can put these ideas across.
Personally, I think companies should bear the cost of advertising themselves- and a US company should use a message which encourages US consumers to buy US goods. There was a question on here not so long ago about the Dodge advert which does just that. I’m not encouraging protectionism – but in a recession it’s every man for himself. In the UK we once had a government sponsored campaign to “Buy British”.
@SDD -I think Tothepoi was talking about deferral of savings- spending money already in hand- not taking on debt.

CAS Anti-Piracy Program Deployment Delayed – Implementation Could Take Months According To VPNReviewz
(PRWEB) July 26, 2012
Referred to as the 6 Strikes Rules by many, it has been announced that the newly developed and formed Center for Copyright Informations, (CCI,) copyright Alert System, (CAS,) would become active on July 12th, the first announcement. But later, Cary Sherman, RIAA CEO, announced at a convention that some of the ISPs would be ready to go live on July 1st, with the others joining in soon after, and again the 12th was mentioned. But the 1st has come and gone, as has the 12th, and as far as anyone has been able to determine, the system still hasnt been implemented.
TorrentFreak reports though, that they have some answers to the delay in implementation. According to their report they asked questions of the correct persons and got answers. Originally, the program was announced early last year, with representatives for the entertainment side of the organization saying implementation in about a year. Then the announcements, and when quizzed, a CCI spokesperson said, We do not intend to launch until we are confident that the program is consumer friendly and able to be implemented in a manner consistent with all of the goals of the MOU. We expect our implementation to begin later this year. Their spokesperson also said that dates mentioned in their MOU, (Memorandum of Understanding,) were not solid deadlines, but guidelines intended to keep motivation at a high level, and get the system up and running, as quickly as possible and in the most consumer friendly manner possible,
The Copyright Alert System, (CAS,) is a system of monitoring internet users data transfers for possible illegal content downloading. The system has a 4 warning/education letters, then escalation to mitigating measures can be taken. Mitigating Measures are a list of punitive actions ranging from upload/download throttling, to a temporary suspension of services. According to the CCI website the only people that need to worry are the P2P and Torrent users, but Michael Maxstead, VPNReviewz CEO, said In order for them to effectively eliminate cases of piracy, the ISPs will have to monitor everything, that everyone is doing. He also asserts that even though most of the system is automated, the data that is stored by the ISPs could become available to employees, or hackers.
The delay that was announced without a new implementation date comes close on the heels of the Allen & Co. convention. The invitation only event, dubbed the Summer Camp For Moguls, allowed no reporters, and information about deals made and discussions had at the convention has been thin. And among the Usenet, P2P, and Torrent communities rumors are circulating that the delay coming after the moguls meeting isnt a simple coincidence. Some are discussing the possibility that RIAA and the MPAA could have convinced more ISPs to enlist in the system. VPNReviewz CEO takes the well see attitude about this, but he says, the opportunity was there, and the system is already almost fully developed So far, only 5 of the largest ISPs in the US, AT&T, Time Warner, Comcast, Cablevision, and Verizon, has enlisted in the program, with the moguls meeeting deals receiving almost no journalistic media attention.
The so called, Summer Camp For Moguls was attended by the biggest and brightest stars in the entertainment and internet industries. Heads of Google, Apple, Facebook, Viacom, YouTube, and many other high tech, and entertainment moguls. And while there were a lot of tensions among the participants, there were opportunities to bury hatchets, and forge the groundwork for new and innovative methods to obtain the goals that havent been legislatively obtainable up to this point. Cary Sherman has been quoted on many blogs as saying the legislative approach to obtaining their goals was no longer attractive.
Its true, that the delay being caused by the addition of ISPs to the CCI rolls is only speculation at this point. But the speculation that shows the direction that the internet is starting to take. VPNReviewz maintains that the only way to truly guarantee personal anonymity and privacy is to use a personal VPN provider. In this way the underpaid employees and hackers that do manage to gain access to your records will only get a garbled mess of encrypted transmissions instead of your passwords and log in information.
