In 2019, humanity collectively spent $563 billion (USD) on advertising. Millions of people devoted countless hours to creating gaudy banners to inconvenience people on the internet, and banal short videos for people to ignore while watching TV. All because some old guys in suits wanted 2% greater profit margins which they refuse to share with their workers.
