Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin More than eighty percent of eligible voters turned out for the Philippines Presidential Election, and it looks a landslide victory for Ferdinand (Bongbong) Marcos Jr. While they are finishing the vote count, several media critics are already trying to punch holes in Bongbong’s stunning landslide victory. Some have pointed to the excesses of his father’s regime (of 36 years ago), while others have targeted his 92-year-old mother (Imelda). Some allege a closer friendship to China, but few have spent time examining the erosion of Philippine love for America – an important analysis for a former USA colony - where the average citizens really do love America. In bygone days, Capitol Hill pushed for closer ties with Manila but, sadly, the former pro-Philippine hawks have long since vacated the building. With Bongbong now on the rise, the U.S. Government is taking a fresh look at ways to improve the relationship. As everyone … [Read more...] about Retail’s Worry: As Philippines Trade Ramps Up – Will Bongbong Marcos Question America’s Love?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Neiman Marcus filed for C hapter 11 bankruptcy protection last week, and a lot of the blame was (rightly) put on the upscale retailer’s massive debt load though the Coronavirus was cited as the cause as well. But, another issue must be raised: Neiman Marcus long struggled to attract millennial and Gen Z consumers. Courting these two groups is key to any longstanding retailer’s existence.

Beth Goldstein, an industry analyst at the NPD Group, says Neiman Marcus isn’t alone. “Most department stores today have this challenge, especially at the high-end. Gen Z and Millennials are driven to specialty retailers and direct-to-consumer channels, both in-store and online,” she says, adding, “New brands born online offer great stories about function, sustainability, and convenience which captured their … [Read more...] about Neiman Marcus Needs To Court The Millennial And Gen Z Customer.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Named the most exclusive health and wellness destination in the world, Clinique La Prairie has been serving up science-backed, holistic solutions since 1931 — that’s a whopping 53 years ahead of Lanserhof. Located in the heart of Montreux, Switzerland, the otherworldly-looking institute is more than just the originator of the medical spa concept with unique touches that go beyond just medical excellence. With its hefty price tag (the Clinique’s most sought-after Revitalization Premium Program starts at a cool US $45,000, with bespoke programs costing upwards of six figures), one might be mistaken to think Clinique La Prairie is all about scenic surroundings and fluffy pampering designed for those with more money than sense.
