If they put real world advertising in another game, Squenix is fucking dead to me.

That was seriously the most disgusting thing I have ever seen in a game before.

Edit: read this book

u/Wunderbar · 4 pointsr/business

It's very simple. Companies may sell products, but what they're really selling is their brand. Read No Logo by Naomi Klein to get a better idea of just how well this has worked.

u/4-1-3-2 · 3 pointsr/radiohead

Quite a few books have been referenced in interviews - here's some of the ones I think I remember. They're all very good books despite any association with Radiohead, by the way.

How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found

The Crying of Lot 49 (also V. and Gravity's Rainbow)


The Hitchhiker Guide

The Divine Comedy

No Logo

Brave New World

Cat's Cradle

Stanley Donwood

> Naomi Klein did:

In 1999.

Jesus, you really are daft if you think nothing has changed in 15 years, especially after a book like that came out. But no, continue to live in the past instead of looking at absolutely any recent sources.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/politics

It's addressed throughout No Logo. The book is about a decade old, but the practices aren't any different now than they were. Though Starbucks is on a massive PR campaign to make their coffees 100% Fair Trade certified, there have been reports over the past several years from workers rights watchdogs and the like about how Starbucks and its contractors treat international/migrant workers like shit. Though the company may not directly do such a thing, it relies heavily on contractors for work overseas, who do not have to abide by the same ethics and code of conduct as Starbucks.

I'm familiar with the C.A.F.E. practices as I was once a Starbucks "partner," and my time working for them (over a decade ago) was enjoyable. However, what you went through was nothing more the retail employee-facing side of their PR campaign. Though they have these guidelines set, they're not in stone and not legally binding.

Some reading I strongly suggest:

  • Gonzo Marketing by Christopher Locke
  • No Logo by Naomi Klein
  • Ham on Rye by Charles Bukowski

    My advice is for you is to forget "best practices" and instead go gonzo. Obeying "best practices" is a recipe for eventual failure even if it seems "safe".

Naomi Klein does

It's been a while since I read it but No Logo by Naomi Klein outlines the damage sweatshops are doing to the developing world. It's a very compelling read. She talks about the aggressive practices that sweatshop operators use including (in one case) giving members of the workforce contraceptives without their knowledge to stop them getting pregnant.

For memory it's also where I learnt about Nike's business model in which they don't make shoes. Nike dont make shoes anymore. They design shoes, they market shoes, but they don't make shoes. They outsource the making of the shoes to people who run sweatshops. This means Nike can distance itself from the practices that go on inside. Now if sweatshops were so good for the local economy and their workers why would Nike need to distance themselves?

u/TheReadMenace · 1 pointr/SubredditDrama

They've been extremely successful with this strategy. There's such a huge Byzantine network of contractors and subcontractors you're never going to find out where your clothes are being made. And that's deliberate. They even sometimes put the logos on at a different factory so the workers won't know who the clothes go to. I'd recommend reading Naomi Klein's No Logo if anyone wants to find out more about this type of thing.

u/AlGoreVidalSassoon · 0 pointsr/malefashionadvice

No, because I'm blissfully ignorant. Many years ago I read No Logo and actively avoided buying many of the brands mentioned in the book for a long time. Eventually I just stopped caring. I don't know why. I guess just work, marriage, kids, life, etc. When I shop I just want it to be enjoyable so I don't really think about other shit.

For some reason Nike always stuck with me though. I haven't bought anything from Nike since then and it always has a negative connotation in my mind to this day.

If I had more disposable income I would probably research a little more and pay a premium for ethically made clothing, if there really is such a a thing. Chances are someone somewhere is getting fucked over for cotton or whatever.
