Truth in advertising

Sometimes advertising would just work better if they spelled it out better. Instead of focusing on what would sell the most products, really advertising information should try and sell the right amount of products.

It would be great to see marketing that tells you how it is.... not just solely focusing on the positives but telling you about the whole product. For instance, hey this product doesn't actually turn your door into a gym or turn your body into a sculpted musclebound masterpiece... at best, it's something you could use a few times and have some fun with.

Some people may like that, and really it's much better than random people buying a door/gym and being disappointed. The true goal of capitalism has to be the efficiency of production, in creating the right amount of products to fulfil needs rather than just trying to create as many products as it can sell.
