Marketers can capture and maintain their market share and build sales in the their particular industry.

In 1973, Peter Drucker stated "The aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well that the product or service fits him or her and sells itself." Considering that marketing is an exchange process between two parties which results in both customer and organizational satisfaction (Kolter & Keller 2006). It seems logical that, if a business is able to produce a product that is able to sell itself (i.e. does not require the assistance of a sales person) then marketing would be accomplished. That is, the customer acquires the product they are looking for, and the business gains its profits....

1.1 High Value of Skin-Care in China
The skin-care industry is worth a whopping $24 billion in the $160 billion dollar beauty industry (“Pots of Promise”, 2003). In China, the Chinese place a high value on beauty and skin-care because they fear ageing (Lin, 2013). Because of this and the growing incomes of the Chinese in China, the skin-care industry is doing extremely well in China where ‘skin care represents 40 per cent of the cosmetics and toiletries market’ (Mobius, 2013, para. 7). As such, many companies have capitalised on this trend and increased their shares in China’s skin-care market (Lin, 2013).

It will be difficult to predict what exactly will happen to the US economy in the future. Many economists do not agree on what will become of the economy. Some feel that we will begin a recession over the next year, and some feel that there is significant policy implementation that will allow us to dodge a recession and regain our economic strength. There are many...

Modern feminists might gasp if I assert patriarchy once allowed efficient economic organization, but the tools of modern political economy unveil the mystery of why inegalitarian gender norms were once economically efficient. Evolving modes of production and material constraints necessitate an efficient division of labor guided by socialized gender norms that adapt to economic macroconditions. Gary Becker and Torben Iversen understand an economic division of labor differently given their different historical-material conditions. In his “Theory of the Allocation of Time,” Becker models an ideal economic division of labor with the household as a single entity seeking maximum utility....

The Superior Court held that where a transsexual was born with physical characteristics of a male, but has successful reassignment surgery so that she became physically and psychologically unified and fully capable of sexual activity as a woman, such transsexual thereby became female for marital purposes....

Gross domestic product (GDP) of a nation is comprised of four primary components. These components; consumption, investment, government spending and net exports are the measure of the monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country's borders in over a given period of time. This can be broken down in any time frame but is normally used quarterly and annually. The GDP can be calculated as; GDP (Y) = consumption (C) + investment (I) + government spending (G) + net exports (NX) or Y=C+I+G+NX. The key word here is finished goods and not all goods.
Household consumption, one of the four components of calculating the GDP of a nation has a broad range...

Grey and white fur moves smoothly as the wind gently blows. The canopy wavers. Clouds pass over the moon. The eyes disappear.I turn and run, fleeing through the deep brush. Branches of low-growing vegetation hit my bare arms, stinging hotly. Warm steam rises out of my mouth as I exhale and inhale, taking in oxygen. Oh, how I love the air. I...

Intelligence: A Product of Social Construction
Since the development of the intelligence quotient, schools in every part of the world have been using the IQ test to categorize millions of students into three groups. These three groups, which are the gifted, the average, and the retarded, are falsifications that perpetuate in our world culture and cause many gifted students to be deemed retarded and vice a versa. Why then is the IQ test so heavily relied on in our school systems? For schools the answer is simple, an I.Q. test is a reliable predictor of a students later performance in academics.

The Forcing of Young People into Community or Government Service
Some people suggest that everyone between the ages of 18 and 21 should be required to perform one year of community or government service. Such service might include the Peace Corps, Environmental Conservancy Corps, a hospital, the military, a rural or inner-city school, or other community outreach projects. I believe forcing the service of any group of people is a bad idea. In this case, three reasons come to mind as to what makes this idea bad. First, I see this as a form of indentured servitude, even though the folks may earn a paycheck. Second, I feel that this idea takes away from the idea of the United States being a...

There are various groups and individuals worldwide that interpret the Bible, the Koran, the Torah, the Vidas, and Buddhist scripture differently. The majority of these groups and religious actors will interpret their respective ‘holy books’ as being a beacon of peace with emphasis on a one-ness with their deity and their community. These same scriptures, though, can be read in another way: a way that condones the use of force under certain circumstances. The emphasis in the early 21st century has been primarily on the justification for violence by small minorities inside these major religions. In contrast, since before the advent of modern day religious terrorism, there have been...
