Advertising: the more things change…

That’s the good Dr. Samuel Johnson, English man of letters, musing about the state of advertising circa 1758. Quote and image discovered at the Experience Economist, along with a nice mini-rant about why people don’t like advertising. Mainly, it’s “because we beat them over the head with ads every where they go!”

I wonder what Dr. Johnson would think about the state of today’s advertising.
