Global advertising spend is $498 billion. We don’t need that shit.

That’s $64 for every single person alive. That’s fucking outrageous.  $498 billion spend manufacturing demand for produce we don’t want, can’t afford, doesn’t make us happy, and typically does fuck up the planet. 

It’s it about time we found a better way of finding out out things we might want to buy? Maybe we could have an enormous interconnected networked information system where you could go and find out about things, then find where to buy them? Then we could leave our houses, see beautiful works of art where the adverts used to be, and beautiful sunsets where the billboards used to be, meet people, and go and buy things.
