Example text

Although in Latin America, nationally owned agencies succeeded during the 1980s in dethroning the subsidiaries of the American agencies, as occurred for example in Brazil and Mexico, the ‘transnational connection’ increasingly passes to the foreign networks. In 1988, two significant events attracted the attention of the specialised press in Mexico and Brazil, countries where the alliance of nationals with transnational networks operates through the big American agencies, since other networks have little hope of competing with them in the subcontinent.

Their system of advertising and marketing has become CULTURE SHOCK 35 institutionalised and shared by other nations. Americanisation has metabolised into what the French historian Jean Chesneaux refers to as ‘world-modernity’ (modernité-monde). In the days of America’s uncontested hegemony over the world economy, it used to be said maliciously that when New York catches cold, London and Paris cough. Today, in the age of trilateral world economy, one should add that when Tokyo falls ill, New York sneezes.

In short, this thrust by internal advertising markets (in some countries, the rise of a national industry) created new power relations which obliged the American networks to re-examine their mode of conduct on foreign territory. Even if the particular form of relationship with the locals is worked out case by case, since it depends precisely on the negotiating capacities of each party, CULTURE SHOCK 33 certain networks elevate the principle of the willing and agreed ‘nationalisation’ of their operation to an article of faith.
