Example text

In effect, it is by means of these networks, through a flow of messages of transnational dimensions, that a permanent, daily and generalised connection is developed between particular societies and cultures, local, regional and national. Hence the primary confrontations between the public cultures belonging to the particular territories of the nation-state, and the cultures of the private sector and the market, with their universalising tendencies and ambitions. Also, the prime tensions between scattered popular cultures and the centralised mass culture which is produced industrially.

13 The various countries of the subcontinent were represented by the directors of the big agencies, to whom were added the commercial directors of big multinational advertisers like Johnson & Johnson, Gerber and Nestlé. Third-generation networks emerged in the 1980s, and corresponded to the growing movement of interconnection and integration between markets and economies. If the first generation could be confused with the so-called process of Americanisation, and if the second could be defined as the internationalisation and consolidation of national protagonists, then the present generation is deeply marked by the process of interpenetration of firms and markets.

Here the planners select the media to be used. Some agencies have separate personnel to carry out these negotiations, while others employ media staff as both planners and buyers, engaged both in planning the schedule to be used and then in buying the slots; the idea is that the planner knows the overall objectives of the campaign and so can buy more effectively. The real portrait of the top advertising strategy-maker is far from the common news-mongering accounts of the life of the ‘business generation’.
