Sucker

by Charity-Joy Acchiardo

On face value, this song is about being so in love with one girl, but it also serves as a metaphor for the dangers of advertising. Advertising companies use subliminal advertising to create brand loyalty. This makes demand highly inelastic, less responsive to price, and raises profits. The use of subliminal advertising is banned in many countries. Should governments protect consumers from themselves?
