    A world without ADVERTISMENTS.... What would that be like??

    We are constantly being bombarded by advertisements everywhere!We see ads on Billboards, Flyers, Posters, Brochures, Facebook, Buses, Cars, Bus Stops and even on Sidewalks!! But have we ever thought about what the world would be like if we never had any advertisments? Tell me what you think......

    I don't think it would ever happen. Even if we got rid of all print advertisements, we would still have word-of-mouth advertising. People are people. They talk and share things with each other. They can't help it.

    And we would definitely make less money here on HubPages without ads!

    Advertisement powers the world of media. Imagine a a care with source of fuel. I think that will be the world of commerce. Dull, drudgery and stale. There won't be revenue stream for innovation. The business and commercial world will be static. Well, what would be the knock on effect? Your guess is as good as mine.

    Nothing would change much. Just a little bit less of lying to people. That's good of course. I do not see other significant changes in the world without advertisements.

    Long before we have billboard, flyers et al, people already talk about thing they find interesting and so we have advertising in its rudimentary form. Personally, I believe we cannot get rid, nor is it a good idea to remove ads..

    This could never happen, and will never happen. Even in a socialist economy, if you have a factory producing a good, you have to let people know your producing it, so that they can consume that good if they need or want it.

    The only way advertising would be able to slip away is if we returned to cottage industry, where we all attempted to de-specialize labor, and concentrated on the basics of survival. Then you wouldn't need ads, because you would already know what your stock would be.

    Well, lets think about this for a moment. Life without advertising would mean:
    No radio (unless you paid for it)
    TV would become so expensive that only the rich could watch it.
    No more TV at your local watering hole unless they were charging 50 bucks a drink to cover the cable bill.
    You would never know about new companies or products.
    No more televised sports - no sponsors, no TV.
    Companies would go bankrupt because they couldn't inform people about their products, or needs.
    Basically I think the end of advertisement would lead to the downfall of society.

    Without advertising consumers would not know what they don’t need. people don't like us.

    If there is no ads, the product cost will reduce and then the price of the product decreases. But the cost of medias must be bear by the consumers.
    Very interestingly, if there is no ads, there is no income from Google adsense for poor hubbers like us.

    Without ads, we would simply be a bunch of uninformed consumers – which is bad for both the producer and us.
