white filter to brown, imagine what it is doing inside your body. Leading up to 2015, this word had seen too many fatalities due to cigarettes. These advertisements try and lead the public away from cigarettes; but if you send out an advertisement with a cigarette on it, it is still a cigarette in the eyes of the world and may cause someone to go buy a pack, even if the original ad was meant to prevent smoking. No matter what, there is no loop hole or escape from cigarettes. They are too common in this world today and will be for a long time to come. The best we can do is inform the public and hope they make the right decision, which is exactly what Economists Review tried to do with their advertisement.

Cigarette advertisements have evolved a drastic amount. When the world knew nothing about cigarettes, we wanted everyone to buy them at all cost necessary. That is why the advertisements were bright colored, reflected everyone in society, and gave loose facts to persuade consumers. Research and studies lead scientists to the sad fact that cigarettes kill; this changed advertising because government then forced all cigarette advertisements and even individual packs to be stamped with the warning of the Surgeon General. At this time, consumers’ view on cigarettes were declining, this decline lead cigarette ads to where they are today: in a death pit. All consumers know the harm behind a cigarette and have developed programs in scaring smokers using vivid graphics or terrifying statistics in their own ads. Cigarette ads and consumers are now at what I believe to be a stalemate: no winner, just death and money. The cigarette companies will get their sales no matter what the public tries.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
