The left block far ahead from the right one

The strategy of the Socialist candidate starts as planned. He won the first round with 28,6% of the votes, less than 2 points ahead of Nicolas Sarkozy (27,2 %). This is the first presidential election that registers such a weak score for the Right (extreme Right excluded), a non-surprise that confirms the “anti-sarkozyst” movement advocated all along the campaign.
The scores of the left candidates total up 43.8% of votes when the right stays behind with a difference of more than 5 points (38.2%), a differential which could prove decisive: to win, the incumbent president must assemble most of the voters of the Centre and the extreme Right, a very complicated gamble…

Interview de Philippe Latimier du Clésieux par Véronique Queffélec

Activité à très forte « valeur ajoutée » L’industrie du luxe pèse plusieurs centaines de milliards d’euros. Y sévissent au coude à coude les plus prestigieuses maisons de Paris, Milan, Londres et New York. Terreau vivant, très porteur de sens où les « créateurs » y anticipent les mutations incessantes de la société et les comportements de clients en quête de différenciation et souvent d’intégration sociale.
Le luxe industrie singulière aide ses clients à se construire une image en symbiose avec le système culturel et social qui les entoure et la façon dont ils souhaitent être perçus.

For advertising It’s much more profitable to invest in Sachin Tendulkar’s team. European brands need to keep it in mind.
