I’ll go a step further. Marketing must die. If people really need something, they’ll search and find it on ta interwebs. If they aren’t searching, they don’t need it. Put all taxes into a single sales tax, so that everyone knows the real cost at the decision point, and eliminate all tax deductions for corporate ”expenses”, buyer incentives and lobbyist advantages by eliminating the income tax code. Pay everyone a prebate to counter the “poor tax”, and increase both the tax and the prebate until no citizen is hungry and the air and waters are clean. Economics is a side effect, not a purpose. Marketing is only another way for a few to take advantage of the handicapped (human animal instincts). Yeah, I said it. American blasphemy.
