The Culture Code: An Ingenious Way to Understand Why People Around the World Live and Buy as They Do

The Culture Code: An Ingenious Way to Understand Why People Around the World Live and Buy as They Do

Why are people around the world so very different? What makes us live, buy, even love as we do? The answers are in the codes.In The Culture Code, internationally revered cultural anthropologist and marketing expert Clotaire Rapaille reveals for the first time the techniques he has used to improve profitability and practices for dozens of Fortune 100 companies. His groundbreaking revelations shed light not just on business but on the way every human being acts and lives around the world. Rapaille’s breakthrough notion is that we acquire a silent system of codes as we grow up within our culture. These codes—the Culture Code—are what make us American, or German, or French, and they invisibly shape how we behave in our personal lives, even when we are completely unaware of our motives. What’s more, we can learn to crack the codes that guide our actions and achieve new understanding of why we do the things we do. Rapaille has used the Culture Code to help Chrysler build the PT Cruiser—the most successful American car launch in recent memory. He has used it to help Procter & Gamble design its advertising campaign for Folger’s coffee – one of the longest lasting and most successful campaigns in the annals of advertising. He has used it to help companies as diverse as GE, AT&T, Boeing, Honda, Kellogg, and L’OrA©al improve their bottom line at home and overseas. And now, in The Culture Code, he uses it to reveal why Americans act distinctly like Americans, and what makes us different from the world around us. In The Culture Code, Dr. Rapaille decodes two dozen of our most fundamental archetypes—ranging from sex to money to health to America itself—to give us “a new set of glasses” with which to view our actions and motivations. Why are we so often disillusioned by love? Why is fat a solution rather than a problem? Why do we reject the notion of perfection? Why is fast food in our lives to stay? The answers are in the Codes. Understanding the Codes gives us unprecedented freedom over our lives. It lets us do business in dramatically new ways. And it finally explains why people around the world really are different, and reveals the hidden clues to understanding us all.

Use of Derivatives in Risk Management

Use of Derivatives in Risk Management

Due to the increased globalisation among economies of the world, corporations use derivatives in order to minimise their exposure to the uncertainty caused by recent economic and financial crunch. The development of option pricing model by Black and Scholes (1973) and Merton (1973) made possible for derivatives market to turn out to be a significant instrument in risk management. The use of derivatives has increased dramatically over the past two decades despite of severe loses faced by corporations. This book emphasis on the most significant rationales over derivative usage among corporations, i.e. why firms use derivatives, its comparison and contrast among developed and developing economies, and factors stimulating firms to use derivatives. An extensive literature review and critical analysis has been undertaken which provides a comprehensive synopsis of the rationales over derivative usage among corporations.

The Rule of Law in the Real World

The Rule of Law in the Real World

In The Rule of Law in the Real World, Paul Gowder defends a new conception of the rule of law as the coordinated control of power and demonstrates that the rule of law, thus understood, creates and preserves social equality in a state. In a highly engaging, interdisciplinary text that moves seamlessly from theory to reality, using examples ranging from Ancient Greece through the present, Gowder sheds light on how societies have achieved the rule of law, how they have sustained it in the face of political upheaval, and how it may be measured and developed in the future. The Rule of Law in the Real World is an essential work for scholars, students, policymakers, and anyone else who believes the rule of law is critical to the proper functioning of society.
