As many western companies rely on the Chinese market for growth and many others have Chinese shareholders, an important part of the world relies on the Chinese economy, therefore what happens in China is important for all of us. Here‘s an interesting analysis of what is going on right now in China, mainly deconstructed some exaggerations present in the media these days.
Other voices claim we are closer to recession and it is all linked to China, again. As stated in the above mentioned analysis, there is a lot of exaggeration around the Chinese economy, but the simple fact that all our studies revolve around China should be an indicator of China’s importance in the world economy. The number of opinions on the matter simply makes my head spin, however, I’ll try to express my opinion: China has been playing a huge role on the world economy since 2008 and for a while it seemed to be the leading economy, not the second one. Still, much of the data available on China is shadowy, as China reports are still massively state controlled and so is the media. Read the rest of this entry »

If you are trying to reach millenials, be that to buy your product, engage them, convince them to vote for you, you should see the infographic Goldman Sachs made. This is the largest generation in the US, more numerous than baby boomers and chances are that at a certain point in your life you will have to talk to this generation.

Voi stiti povesti despre criza aia mare? Eu stiu povesti despre criza aia mare din Romania. Criza aia cand se cumpara sacul de faina cu sacul de bani. De multe nu era faina, erau cereale. Dar atunci era vremea in care dintr-un sac de grau scoteai jumatate de sac de faina. Astazi traim vremea in care dintr-un sac de grau scoti doi saci de faina. Criza alimentara reala nu ne paste la colt pentru ca alimentatia poate fi inlocuita.
Prezenti la Super Bowl
Tocmai am aflat cine a cumparat spatiu publicitar in timpul Super Bowl 2012. Companiile cumparatoare de spatiu in Adage: InBev, Audi of America, Best Buy, Cars.com, Century 21, Coca Cola, General Motors, GoDaddy, Hyundai, PepsiCo, Toyota, Volkswagen. Cum stau eu si ma uit mai mult in gol la cafea ma gandesc la un pattern al cumparatorilor de spatiu publicitar. Criza ar fi trebuit sa le dea un anumit comportament.
