MARKETING RESEARCH: Way to LIGHT tomorrow?

Have you ever had the feeling that you are being “bred”? It appears to me periodically when I am offered to advertise, conduct marketing research or just buy something … Recently I found the following (quote) on the site of one of the marketing companies: “It is possible to” fit “an existing study to your needs.” Since then, another paranoid thought has entered my mind – why conduct such a study?
