Swami and a million others don't get Liberty. Ditto Obama.

Its easy to see why Swami thinks the 'Indian parliamentary system looks saner and stabler than the American one today', and that the latter 'stinks morally'.

He just doesn't get 'Liberty'. Like a million others. In fact most citizens elsewhere have no clue about what the American founding fathers had in mind when they drafted the American constitution. What Swami calls 'insane', 'unstable', and a 'stinker' is in fact the finest example of a country being founded on the principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for its citizenry. 

What Swami calls a mess is a testament to the triumph of liberty. The American Constitution is the only one that protects its citizens from its government. No other Constitution anywhere understood how important that was. In fact no other founding fathers understood liberty the way American founders did. In preserving liberty, the wise American founding fathers decided the people need protection from the possibility of a tyrannical government taking away their rights. What Swami and most see as a mess in America today, is in fact the power of people stopping the tyranny of a socialist cabal. 

Stopping Obama is a necessity. It has to be done before he takes a liberty-believing America down the socialist hellhole. The Democrats won't do it considering they are as socialist as it gets. The Republicans too aren't up to it considering they too are in many ways socialists in libertarian attire. So then who can, and who will? 

Thank God for the Tea Party. Thank God for the real conservatives who can stand up to a community organizer and his cabal. If it requires a shutdown, so be it.

For now, know this is just the beginning to reclaiming America so it can go back to what its founding fathers meant it to be.

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Situational Involvement of Consumers

There are two types of involvement that consumers have with products and services, Situational and Enduring. Situational involvement as the term suggests, occurs only in specificsituations whereas Enduring involvement is continuous and is more permanent in nature.

Decisions to buy umbrellas in India are driven by the onset of Indian monsoon. Monsoon rains arrived in India over the South Andaman Sea on May 10 and over the Kerala coast on May 28, three days ahead of schedule. But then, after a few days of rain, South India is witnessing a spate of dry weather. Temperatures are soaring in the north of India. The Umbrella companies in the state of Kerala are wishing for the skies to open up. So is the farming community and manufacturers of rural consumer products whose product sales depend totally on the farming community. The Met. department has deemed this dry spell as 'not unusual'.

India's monsoon rains have been static over the southern coast since last Tuesday because of a…

Prior Hypothesis Bias

Prior Hypothesis bias refers to the fact that decision makers who have strong prior beliefs about the relationship between two variables tend to make decisions on the basis of those beliefs, even when presented with the evidence that their beliefs are wrong. Moreover, they tend to use and seek information that is consistent with their prior beliefs, while ignoring information that contradicts these beliefs.

From a strategic perspective, a CEO who has a strong prior belief that a certain strategy makes sense might continue to pursue that strategy, despite evidence that it is inappropriate or failing.

Wearing Cuba means Walking Cuba

There's something ethereal about wearing 'Cuba'. Suddenly its the streets of Havana, smoke filled and lit by the groovin', more than the lights. The bars are packed to hilt and dreamy women seem to glide by. The feeling's beyond magical.

How did I get there?

Before I explain, I gotta tell you about the power of brands to take you places. Brands bring with them an ability to prompt you to conjure up the unreal. They can transform your reality into fantasy. And consumers are more than willing partners to brands as the drudgery they face in everyday life begs an injection of fantasy. Brands that operate in a zone of the unreal do the conjuring act as there's nothing else that consumers can call for, while making judgements. For instance, what should I be judging the lip paint on? Its colour and tone or its ability to turn me into a diva?

Cuba's a perfume. The moment I wear it, I am traipsing the streets of Havana. Its smoke filled bars I see. Its music I hear and…
