Time for industry workers to make case to Congress

July 2009
Advertising Age;7/27/2009, Vol. 80 Issue 26, p9
Trade Publication
The author argues that people who work in the advertising industry need to lobby the U.S. Congress in order to protect its interests against political actions which would harm them. It is said that Congress will be looking for money to spend on its pet initiatives, and advertisers may be viewed as a convenient scapegoat by people who are unhappy with the economy.
