  • The Economist: Brands and Brandingby Rita Clifton

    Profile Books 2010; US$ 26.67

    Although the balance sheet may not even put a value on it, a company's brand or its portfolio of brands is in many cases its most valuable asset, accounting for as much as 70% of a firm's market value in some cases.

    Standard economic theory of consumer behaviour considers consumers' preferences, their incomes and commodity prices to be the determinants of consumption.

Whether... more...
