Today, the high sales of popular consumer goods reflect the power of advertising and not the real need of the society in which they are sold. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Nowadays, people want to own more things than ever. Some people believe that it is just because of advertising in spite of real needs in current societies. However, I think that there are more than one reason behind this reality. Modern lifestyle is fast, consequently consumer goods are answers to make it easier. That is why, people want to have those things.
First of all, it is pivotal to be aware of our current way of living, because it is very demanding of time and effort. Hence, people want to make life as easy as possible. As a result of it, scientists have designed lots of new things which help people to do daily activities. With publicity or without it things such as cell phones and refrigerators solve problems in a short and efficient way. Thus, it is natural that people want this kind of thing; they had become into real needs.
Nonetheless. The brands that people are used to buying depend almost 1% on advertisements. For instance, some people only buy Apple devises. They think that Apple products are better than others because most of the time movies show people using this brand. Maybe some Apple stuffs are very good ones, but there are people who have never tried other brands, because their blindly believe in publicity. Thus, there are some popular consumer goods which are essential in people routine, nevertheless sometimes people buy one brand due to its marketing campaign.
In conclusion, I am not in favor of the reason why people want to have more things is just because they are prey of marketing. In my opinion, many popular goods make life effortless to deal with demands. Although, some people rather to buy a specific brand or think that a brand is the best one just because they have watched it by media.
