Americans Blame Ad Agencies for Economic Crisis

April 20, 2009 – 11:19 am

When I first read the story called Americans Blame Ad Agencies, Media for Economic Crisis from MarketingVox, I thought it was a joke. Really? Americans blame Ad Agencies? Where is the personal responsibility?

Two-thirds of Americans (66%) believe ad agencies have at least some responsibility for the current economic crisis because they caused people to buy things they couldn’t afford

Come on, Americans. Don’t blame Ad Agencies for doing our jobs, which, if you forgot, is to convince you to buy things. Its not our fault that you bought stuff that you can’t afford.

Everyone who believes it needs to watch the SNL skit Don’t Buy Stuff
