Marketing Ethics and Children
Describe ethical considerations with regard to marketing to children. When the marketers’ pitch includes a cause component, such as a breakfast cereal that promises to provide breakfasts to undernourished school children, explain whether this is ethical or unethical marketing. You must use the text and at least one additional scholarly source.
Review several of your peers’ posts. Respond to at least two of your peers and provide recommendations to extend their thinking. Challenge your peers by asking a question that may cause them to reevaluate their explanations. Provide examples that support your peers’ explanations or that provide a different perspective.
