      • What is meant by this?
      • set of common values and beliefs shared by most people in a given society, framing how the majority think
      • What constitutes our view of democracy? How does it allow personal freedom? Can freedom be bought?
      • Watch the clip on You Tube and dominant ideology
      • Your task is to write a 200-300 word report on market liberalism in action using a media form as your example
      • Try to include discussion on the following…
      • How do markets work -very basic eg supply and demand, markets value, cost etc
      • What is capitalism and how does it operate in outline?
      • What are the benefits of capitalism?
      • Where does the individual and their freedom fit into this?
      • Culture as a marketable and bankable commodity?
      • Is a dominant ideology (viewpoint) being spread? How does this fit into debates about personal freedom?
