Thanks for posting this article. Economist Stephanie Kelton has talked about the "battle over price" in capitalism. Sellers want to charge more, buyers want to pay less. The market is the battleground. From this perspective, advertising is a tactic to support the seller's price. I am glad Prof. Piety has considered some of the social costs for advertising that are not included in the price.
