Consumer Quotes A-Z by Author|
It is a fact that, in the West, we live
in a capitalist society, but that does not
mean that we cannot be guided by the idea
of a social conscience in our work. Yes,
fashion design requires consumers to consume,
but we can do our bit for society by running
our companies in a socially
responsible way, and by creating products
that promote respect for social and environmental
issues. There is also the possibility for
power and influence to be a force for change.
Armani - Design
Theres no denying that a collapse
in stock prices today would pose serious
macroeconomic challenges for the United
States. Consumer spending would slow, and
the U.S. economy would become less of a
magnet for foreign investors. Economic growth,
which in any case has recently been at unsustainable
levels, would decline somewhat. History
proves, however, that a smart central bank
can protect the economy and the financial
sector from the nastier side effects of
a stock market collapse.
Bernanke - Problems
I never get the accountants in before I
start up a business. It's done on gut feeling,
especially if I can see that they are taking
the mickey out of the consumer.
Branson - Accounting
At a time when all the other builders were
selling homes with basements but without
carports, we would sell homes without basements
and with carports. This allowed us to provide
a more appealing product at a lower price.
In other words, we felt we would be giving
customers greater value.

Estate - Selling
At Revolution Health Group we will put consumers

While the demand for organic food outstrips
supply, we happen to know that 77 percent
of consumers don't want genetically engineered
crops grown in this country. Consumers can
choose whether or not to buy organic produce.
Genetically modified ingredients will deny
us choice in the long run.
Charles - Organic
The demand for organic food is growing at
a remarkable rate. Consumers have made it
clear that they want organic produce and
every sector of the food chain is responding,
with the kind of results we have just seen.
Charles - Growth
I have been very impressed by the slow food movement. It is about celebrating
the culture of food, of sharing the extraordinary knowledge, developed over millennia,
of the traditions involved with quality food production, of the sheer joy and
pleasure of consuming food together. Especially within the context of family life,
this has to be one of the highest forms of cultural activity.
Charles - Food
When you think of the blur of all the brands
that are out there, the ones you believe
in and the ones you remember, like Chanel
and Armani, are the ones that stand for
something. Fashion is about establishing
an image that consumers can adapt to their
own individuality. And it's an image that
can change, that can evolve. It doesn't
reinvent itself every two years.
Lauren - Branding
The key to longevity is to keep doing what
you do better than anyone else. We work
real hard at that. It's about getting your
message out to the consumer. It's about
getting their trust, but also getting them
excited, again and again. My clothes.. the
clothes we make for the runway.. aren't
concepts. They go into stores. Our stores.
Thankfully, we have lots of them.
Lauren - Products
Work - Trust
There is no room for dictating taste in
the diverse and dynamic world of media.
To limit taste only limits the role we play
for people of all kinds.
Murdoch - Media
We have recognized that the world is changing.
How your children are behaving, how their
friends are behaving. What they consume
and what they watch.
Packer - Change
fact of the matter is that today, stuff-selling mega-corporations have a huge
influence on our daily lives. And because of the competitive nature of our global
economy, these corporations are generally only concerned with one thing.. the
bottom line. That is, maximizing profit, regardless of the social or environmental
Suzuki - Companies
Ethics - Social
Our personal consumer choices have ecological, social, and spiritual consequences.
It is time to re-examine some of our deeply held notions that underlie our lifestyles.
Suzuki - Environmental
We no longer see the world as a single entity. Weve moved to cities
and we think the economy is what gives us our life, that if the economy is strong
we can afford garbage collection and sewage disposal and fresh food and water
and electricity. We go through life thinking that money is the key to having whatever
we want, without regard to what it does to the rest of the world.
