If advertising worked…

…products would fly off the shelf as consumers spent wildly on products (cuz God knows advertising never tells consumers to not buy)…

…inventory levels would soon be depleted causing manufacturers to increase production capacity…

…causing manufacturers to obtain new capital and loans to finance the creation of new production capacity…

…which would cause a capital shortage within financial institutions who have limited capital to invest…

…which would cause interest rates to skyrocket…

…which would reduce corporations profitability….

…which would cause the stock market to decrease…

….and cause firms to lay off workers…

….all of which would reduce consumers’ income and net worth….

….and cause the economy to collapse.

…which would force consumers to take out loans to finance their spending….

…which they would not get, because all of the capital would have already been lent to manufacturers…

…and exacerbate layoffs…

…and further cause the economy to collapse.
