Consuming Kids: The Commercialization of Childhood [Full Film]

Post  Sputnik on Tue 13 Dec 2011, 14:53

Consuming Kids throws desperately needed light on the practices of a relentless multi-billion dollar marketing machine that now sells kids and their parents everything from junk food and violent video games to bogus educational products and the family car. Drawing on the insights of health care professionals, children’s advocates, and industry insiders, the film focuses on the explosive growth of child marketing in the wake of deregulation, showing how youth marketers have used the latest advances in psychology, anthropology, and neuroscience to transform American children into one of the most powerful and profitable consumer demographics in the world. Consuming Kids pushes back against the wholesale commercialization of childhood, raising urgent questions about the ethics of children’s marketing and its impact on the health and well-being of kids.

Long video; good insights for people who have not already determined
this with corporations commercializing the world's slaves/plebeian class.

I think if time is spent viewing videos on this subject, the work of Professor
David Morris
would probably be time better spent.
