    If you are in a recession the last thing you should ever stop is R&D and advertising. Spend your last dollar on those and your company has a better chance of surviving.

    Advertising is so weird. How many times do I need to see an ad for a drug I don't need. I love the one for the anti-depression medicine (depression is debilitating but usually not fatal unless the sufferor commits suicide) with a warning that the pill may cause death!!! I think I would try Medical Marijuana or any thing before I took that drug.

    Way back in prehistoric times, when I was a teen, working in a dying book store, the owner mentioned that the reason he was going out of business while his competitor still had 3 stores was that he hadn't kept up on advertising (the other guy had several billboards around town).

    There's another drug, I forget the name and what it's supposed to treat, but it's something non-fatal and one of the stated possible side-effects in the commercial is cancer. :eek:

    I think we need a drug that cures all the side effects of the other drugs :D
