"off duty" 1970 - 1997 - eine Werbezeitung für's US Militär

Die in diesem amerikanischen (Freizeit-) Shopping-Magazin angeprie- senen Produkte waren auschließlich amerikanischen und kanadischen Militärangehörigen ausserhalb der USA zugänglich - also zu kaufen - vor allem zu ganz ungewöhnlich (verblüffend) niedrigen US $ Military-Preisen. Zu der einführenden "off duty" Seite geht es hier lang.

  • In den off-duty Military-Magazinen, die uns seit 1972 nahezu komplett vorliegen, jedenfalls bis der Audio-Boom der 1970er Jahre abgeflaut war, sind eine Menge "Marktentwicklungs-" Zusammenhänge zu erkennen, die aus unseren deutschen Hifi-Magazinen nur schwer ersichtlich sind.
  • Dadurch, daß sich das off-duty Magazin nur über Anzeigen finanzierte, waren die Auftraggeber/Inserenten extrem erfolgsabhängug. Kam der Markt ins Stocken, wurde einfach nicht mehr inseriert. So einfach war das.
  • Weiterhin waren diese "military prices" ganz extrem (niedrig) im Vergleich zu unseren deutschen Marktpreisen und selbst zu den für uns immer noch deutlich niedrigeren US-amerikanischen Marktpreisen.
  • Weiterhin sind viele technischen Daten unrealistisch geschönt bzw. nach (für uns) dubiosen Standards gemessen.
  • Es fällt auch auf, daß die japanischen Firmen unter immensem Erfolgsdruck standen und mit teilweise völlig unübersichtlichen Produkt-Paletten versucht hatten, jede auch noch so kleine Nische zu besetzen und der Konkurrenz um fast jeden Preis keine Lücke zu lassen. Amerikanische und deutsche Produkte sind schon lange nicht mehr dabei.
