Rising Nationalism vs. The International Language of Advertising.
Dunn, S. Watson
One of the cherished myths of the 1960s and the 1970s has been that the countries of the world are at last giving up their long-standing nationalism and are approaching the one world that Wendell Wilkie, Dag Hammarskjold, and many others used to talk about. There is indeed much evidence to indicate that this may be true. On the other hand, Peter Drucker has warned us that the political units of the world are on a collision course with the economic concept of one world. He points out that there is really no economic substitute for the nation state. There is increasing evidence to indicate that nationalism is on the rise and that advertising planners as well as economists and all sorts of internationalists may be in for hard times during the next decade. A review of the literature, using Western Europe as a case in point, provides support for Drucker's position. (Author/RB)
