Ninety Things to Watch in 2009 -- JWT's Annual List

JWT, one of the largest advertising agencies in the world, has released its list of 90 things to watch in 2009.


2009 New Year


"Our list points to the broader trends we're seeing, showing the ways in which these shifts will manifest in our everyday lives," says Ann Mack, director of trendspotting at JWT. Among these shifts, the recession will make the biggest impact, says Mack. "A lot of what to watch in 2009 relates to consumers' adaptation to the economic situation, from 'affordable nutrition' to 'more under one roof,'" notes Mack.

Our Opinion

U.S. Federal Government has done all it can currently do to sustain the ailing domestic (as well as global) economy.

It is a crime to put all the blame on the managements of the bankrupt or struggling American corporations and make them scapegoats.

The blame must be shared by all those who have been blind to (or unaware of) the Highest Law of Economics and have been advertently or inadvertently contributing towards the propagation of the easy-money excessive greed culture originating in the USA.

Such contributors include the Top American Business & Financial Newspapers & Magazines, Relevant Leading Advertising Agencies, and some Industry Specific Labor Unions.
