  • China WILL surpass the US as a global economy by 2050, it will be the largest economy, driven by population growth
  • 1000 new mobile users every minute, 84% of internet users are outside the US; growth is MASSIVE in china, 92% growth compared to US 17%
  • What does access to information do? Overthrow dictatorships. Changes how we make decisions. We don’t have to do what we are told. Not obligated to follow through on expectations. Check veracity of claims.
  • This creates a homogeneity of consumer experience for consumers. Lets brands speak to us in shorthand.
  • Globalization pressures culture and tradition. People worry aspects of their culture will disappear.
  • Developed West is Maslow’s needs – Physiological, safety, social and emotional, esteem; Developing East is Pinto’s needs – Physiological, Need to please the group, good name, honour [cool!]
  • Think global but act local. team structure, research approach, customized output.
  • Global segments didn’t show up in every country. Local countries defined the names of each segment. Allowed local digression.
  • 1 global summary, 3 regional summaries, 8 country reports, Customized views by audience, topics
