What do you think about limiting campaign spending? (especially for TV ads)
Why not just use the Internet? Most people fast forward through TV commercials anyway. Debates are good, and so are personal appearances -- but the amount spent on TV ads... a waste. Ideas?
I think its a good thought. When you hear how much money is wasted on campaigns it is sickening...but I don't see them ever limiting the number. Someone would cry a violation of their rights or financial discrimination.
So unfortunately I think we are stuck with it.
I think campaign spending has gotten way out of hand and allows those with the most money to gain an advantage over their opponents. It doesn't always work, but it does force both sides to spend too much.
I also think we should have term limits. If we could have that, the campagin spending would become self limiting.
I would like to share with you my survey-based research on television advertisement and consumer behavior.
One of the facts (recognized market research data) that I came across while researching for it indicates that tv advertisements are effective and the tv-ad segment of advertising in expected to increase over the years to come with increasing consumer confidence. Look into my blog for more detailed information.
Here is the link to my blog post with the report (pdf version available for free download):
This got featured in CNN iReport:
Feel free to visit my blog and see if my research helps you in any way. My objective of doing that work is to create public awareness against unethical advertising.

Why do you think the drug companies today spend so much money on media ads and not on research?In the past, very few drugs were advertised, and it seems in the last ten years media overloads us with these ads. I know it is to make money, but whatever happened to finding cures and ensuring safety...
