Lecture 5: Consumer Society Aug. 24 Consumer Society o Our primary means of support are our consuming citizens Not selling and making, but buying and using goods and services. This is how our economy works How did we get here? Three Dimensions of Emergence for the Rise of a Consumer Society o Agriculture vs. Manufacturing Manufacturing: Industrial revolution drove the growth of advertising. Replaced farming as the main economic model What was the byproduct? o Rural Population vs. Urban Population From 1890 to 1940, many families moved into urban areas and cities, following job growth and industry expansion. The populations shifted from farming families making up 38%of the population and nonfarm families making up 62% in 1890 to farming families making up 20% and nonfarm families making up 80% of the population in 1940. o Increases in personal earnings and spending Standard of living had been increasing as household income and household spending increased By 1950, household spending and income had increased 5.5 times what they were in 1901. Dramatic increases in: Manufacturing compared to agriculture (wage workers with paychecks) Nonfarm residents compared to farm residents (city dwellers) Personal income and spending Greater needs and means to buy stuff The Role of Advertising and Branding o Advertising changed to go beyond notices and announcements o Grew to fit the needs of a consumer society o Advertisers used branding to create preference and make their products stand out. Branding o First successfully done with patent medicines o The more you advertise, the more you sell o Companies worked to brand generic products Giving consumers a reason to buy that product – called reasonwhy advertising o Advertising created the need to buy products: “The colonizing of the body” – You needed to not smell, so you bought soap Advertisers convinced people that every part of the body needed its own kind of product to clean and maintain it. Halitosis and Listerine o Ways of Buying Traditional: Country store Variety of generic goods Merchant recommendation New: Department store Huge selections and volume National, manufactured goods Preferences created by advertising Department stores: Opulent interior Shopping became an experience Offered “something more” More to choose from (preferences) – driven by advertising More to do while shopping (the experience) – driven by stores National consumer base (not restrained by locality) – driven by infrastructure… railroads, trucks, distribution
