evilsavingsposter2In these sobering economic times, NPR reported on an unusual approach that Finland is hoping will help end its recession. There’s a national ad campaign (with ads designed by Bob Helsinki) against saving money and promoting spending money instead.

This runs contrary to an ad campaign sponsored by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants which is using a spokespig, Benjamin, to encourage Americans to save money. Check out www.feedthepig.org for more information about their campaign. Interesting opposing approaches…
