Persuasive Advertising With Sophisticated But Impressionable Consumers

I propose a model in which consumers base their purchasing decisions upon their recollections of product quality and in which firms can use advertising to change these recollections. Although consumers are aware that such advertising has occurred, they cannot prevent their memories from being affected. I show that this type of advertising does not necessarily signal high-quality products.
