Therefore, he who drinks Malibu Rum is also livelier than his fellow citizens. Solomon emphasizes that “the competitive nature of democratic societies breeds a desire for social distinction, a yearning to rise above the crowd” (526). Elitist ads turn products into indications of success; the product one purchases reflects his/her social status. In this case, Malibu Rum is the consumer’s ticket to social superiority. For Instance, “we Americans dream of rising above the crowd, of attaining a social summit beyond the reach of ordinary citizens” (Solomon 525).
Some of our bottled water comes from the UK, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Italy, France, Canada, USA, India, Fiji and even the sky! Our water comes from all over the world but we don’t realise it.

Coca-Cola is probably doing better now and will probably do even better financially in the future because of all their new products. Since they have started to decrease the sugar and calories in many of their products, it is helping the society to decrease obesity with their drinks and also is helping their company to do better since their consumers want to buy their products. In the book, we talk about sustainability. I believe that Coca-Cola’s new products, new commercial, and new perspective is sustainable. As stated in MKTG, sustainability ‘refers to the idea that socially responsible companies will outperform their peers by focusing on the world’s social problems and viewing them as opportunities to build profits and help the world at the same time(p.38)’.
When “Cadieux refocused QuikTrip’s product offerings toward high-volume items such as branded beer, soda, cigarettes, coffee, and candy, and eliminated low-volume items such as canned vegetables, he cut prices as well.” Then he decided to add gasoline sales, which has proved to be doing well as he aims to be the dominant convenience/gasoline retailer in each market, and have high-volume locations. However, QuikTrip’s success can be attributed to providing its customers with “high quality products and excellent service.” If any company were to learn something from QuikTrip’s success, it would be to hire the people who you want to have represent your store – people who are over-achievers, and put effort into all of their work, whatever the task may be. Using a company’s human resources for the better, hiring the right kind of person to work for you, who has a positive attitude, can change the image and culture of your organization. If your customers are happy, then they will most likely want to come back to recreate the pleasurable experience. This will also generate positive publicity for your company, as word of mouth can be a powerful tool to attract and retain new

The expansion of cities and industry has led to concerns about water pollution, despite governments promoting the cleanliness and safety of municipal water sources. Additionally, the growth of large metropolitans has caused a shift in our lifestyle. This means we are in a perpetual rush. Bottled water plays a highly utilitarian role by providing a simple solution to both these problems. The popularity of this “solution” is apparent in the $22 billion USD average annual revenue of the industry.

The chief argument in why the consumption of milk is so beneficial to our diet is the importance of the calcium we get from it. Drinking milk is said to be the most practical way to receive the calcium that our bodies need in order to grow and properly develop. Calcium during key years in bone development can literally make or break a persons bone health. With high amounts of calcium intake leading to stronger bones, there is less of a chance of developing osteoporosis and other potential health problems in the future. Milk is also said to help speed up weigh loss and reduce body fat, because of the indispensible mix of nutrients that appear to speed up metabolism and increase the body's ability to burn fat.
Globalization, through the reduction of trade barriers, has increased integration of various national economies. Its impact on advanced nations, such as the USA and Japan, is highly positive and profitable. However, the same cannot be said with regard to developing nations, such as Thailand and Indonesia. Globalization is akin to swimming in the sea, depending on the status of the nation. Advanced nations can enjoy the cooling feel of the water, but the less advanced of the risk of sinking or even drowning.
