If a business is a monopoly, why should it advertise? Urban Milwaukee editor Bruce Murphy joins host Jeramey Jannene to discuss his latest article on We Energies‘ widespread marketing.

Murphy and Jannene also discuss last week’s news rollercoaster involving electronics manufacturer Foxconn’s plan to build a manufacturing campus in southern Racine County. Is it still happening? Did President Donald Trump save it? What happens next?

    …”not something I can go out and buy, it’s not something I have a choice in buying”…
    I’ve said the same thing for years regarding advertising of prescription drugs.
    In addition, advertising is a marketing expense. I believe that they are tax deductable.
