The paper explains that media promotion and advertising affects the way in which television, print, as well as film and politics are run. It points out that these structures help to shape the way in which we all live our lives, and to shape the way in which American culture has and will evolve. The writer concludes that this makes advertisements and media promotion a key part of America's consuming culture.

From the Paper:

"America has become the essence of the free enterprise model. This difference in culture from the rest of the world is readily visible in the way in which American corporations do business: by focusing on quantity and producing efficiently as opposed to producing a refined quality product. Advertising is in essence the mass promotion of mass produced products, and has become the primary way to communicate and educate consumers about products. This results in a continued drive, at every level, for more material wealth. Mass promotion has become a science, that is effectively making every American a consumer. "
