effect of advertising


Hi gd afternoon going to analyse the issue on Advertising.
firstly let me introduce the bg facts of it.

In 1990,there was a deregulation on advertising of doctors in Australia.
traditional view:advertising by drsāunsavoury practice and waste of scarce resources
Dr shd be allowed to undertake restricted types of advtersing
adv created unjustified expectation or promoted unnecessary or inappropriate use of medical services.
Critics:the effect of advertising costs on the price of medical services

Some studies at US:supportive data on deregulation
in 1983-the federal trade Commission(FTC) surveyed 3200 lawyers in 17 states n concluded that the fees of the diff cases were 5-13% lower in cities with fewer restriction on advertising

Q2)Some producers of essentially homogenous products such as particular varieties of oranges,apples,and tomatoes attempt to differentiate their product by attaching small stickers that give the name and logo of the producer.Why do you think these producers go to the added expense of attaching these stickers

Referring to the turkey meat case/spend more on advertising the profit can attract more customers so as to make more profit.the advertised meat n ...
