Event Description:

In 2005, U.S. companies spent more than $20 billion advertising to young people. But when you ask those same young people if they are influenced by advertising messages, their response is usually an emphatic “no.” Why are companies so interested in shaping the financial habits of today’s young people? Nathan Dungan offers insights on the motives behind the big-dollar ad campaigns and how to raise your and your child’s marketing IQs. Dungan, who is president and founder of Share Save Spend and author of Prodigal Sons and Material Girls: How Not to be Your Child’s ATM, helps individuals and families escape the grip of today’s consumerism. Admission is free. Presented by the Butler MBA Association Speaker Series, Butler University, and Spirit & Place.
