The endless pursuit by corporations of the youth market demands that advertising and marketing experts construct new tactics to attract youthful buyers. This is especially relevant in Cambodia, where youth make up a significant portion of the population. Unfortunately, this means whole social networks, communal economies, and value systems are put in jeopardy. Sometimes, advertising and marketing spin completely out of control, and issues of social justice are trampled in pursuit of profits. Author Anne Elizabeth Moore will present a multimedia lecture on the ugly underbelly of our globalizing world.
