What Is Neuromarketing?

As a concept, neuromarketing is a marketing research field that studies how the brain responds to specific marketing stimuli. According to an article in Forbes on the topic, there are several lines of research, including decision neuroscience, which looks at “what our brains do as we make choices.” This specific line of inquiry is important for understanding how different marketing techniques affect the brain and how that affects the decision your potential customer makes.

More specifically, neuromarketing looks at why consumers might choose one product over another and then further extrapolates how to utilize marketing techniques to get a specific result.»

Enter a nascent field called neuromarketing, which uses the tools of neuroscience to determine why we prefer some products over others. Harvard Business School marketing professor Uma R.

«How Russia’s New Rating Agency Can Take on the Mighty Moody’s & Co»

«German newspaper Die Welt looked at the chances of Russia’s Analytical Credit Rating Agency (ACRA), gaining a following among Western observers, and its similarities to China’s Dagong rating agency.

Russia’s Analytical Credit Rating Agency (ACRA) is part of a plan to build a financial system independent of the West that can succeed if it builds on a relationship with the Chinese economy and the Dagong credit rating agency, Die Welt reported.

«The Kremlin has repeatedly articulated its displeasure with the Western ratings agencies. The ratings that S&P’s, Moody’s and Fitch gave to companies after sanctions were immediately withdrawn.»

«Nine months later S&P and Moody’s lowered Russia’s credit rating to junk status, in view of the low oil price and Western sanctions. Moscow criticized the move as politically motivated, citing Russia’s debt to GDP ratio of 19 percent, among the lowest in the world.»  «

«Moody’s withdrawal of Russia’s local ratings leaves field open for Kremlin-promoted agency»

«Moody’s decision to stop issuing local credit ratings on Russian companies is the start of a process that will eventually allow a Kremlin-promoted national rating agency to dominate, market players said on Thursday.

That process began last year when President Vladimir Putin, angered at downgrades of Russia’s sovereign rating by Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s, accused the big Western agencies of «politicised» actions, suggesting they were taking the West’s side in the stand-off over the Ukraine conflict.

Putin approved a law regulating the activities of ratings agencies and expedited the creation of a new national Analytical Credit Rating Agency (ACRA).

Moody’s cited the new law when announcing its decision late on Wednesday to stop issuing national ratings for companies and other organisations within Russia.»
