America's Reputation

There is an interesting poll among Economist.com readers in its special edition on what to expect in 2006. One of the findings is that 53% believe that America's reputation abroad will deteriorate this year. This is a sizeable change from October 2004 (pre-presidential election) when this question was asked and the figure stood at 44%. Clearly, America's brand health is on the decline.

Although I do not like to compare apples to oranges, I cannot avoid mentioning that President Bush's recent reputation ratings are equally low (around 33%). The link between President Bush's and America's reputation is not accidental. Just as CEO and company reputation is inextricably linked, the same goes for our president and America Inc.

I wonder how low these rankings will go over the next two years. I also wonder how these figures compare to other leaders and country reputations. Perhaps another new research idea.

The UK firm will buy the mortgage portfolios from GMAC-RFC, a UK-based lender owned by the US auto group.
The deal is the third with GMAC-RFC, following the acquisition of a number of similar loan portfolios by B&B, worth �3.1bn, since 2002.

Hello, I'm doing a Speech presentation concerning America's International Reputation due to Corporate fraud/unethical corporate practices. I'm doing research and I would like your help. I'm having some challenges getting articles to back up my claim that these practices do have an effect on America's reputation. This is my first time coming to your website today. It's lovely :) Have a good day!!

Hi, Ok I have a dell laptop inspiron E1505, I really need help with this malware or whatever it is ! I didn't have a good virus protection, and at the time of infection a prompt kept coming up something like you can delete this virus but you may lose files, damage your computer or it may not restart! I got frustrated seeing the same thing, so instead of downloading a better virus protector I press yes and my computer shut down on me. It restarted, and then I got the virus protector like a dummy. But now Im getting prompts that say, "___dllc:/windows/system32/lasbemo.dll file image does not exists check this against you diskette!! its a buch off different ones. Im lost, Im not good with computer's if your gonna help I need A LOT of detail. Thanks =) [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]
