Baby Boom, Boom, Baby, It’s You!
The writing of this book goes back some 14 years ago, reading a book, Out Of The Garden - Toys and Children’s Culture In to The Age Of TV Marketing, By Stephen Kline. This would show how through Children programming, its popular culture, advertisers, and marketers, through market strategy get us to buy their products. I knew from the beginning that it would be a hard sell, to try and give you a heads up, into how we all be doped, coned, persuaded into wanting you to know how this happened, and played a big part in everyone life, at any given age or generation you were part of. As I put it, “When you were born, your story begins!”
We all know the news event of each decade and the popular Movies and music. But did you have any ideas how we all (each decade) unfolds, how our spending habits came to be, what were the influences, how you drove your parents crazy into buying what you wanted. And your parent themselves, and buy public itself, into buying their next purchase. I hope you can see the pattern. You and I, are so different, but I’m sure very much the same, we just have our own story to tell.
