Presenting the Consultant’s Forum, April 18th 6:00 P.M.

Share. Learn. Grow.


Demographics and Behavioral Economics
Do consumers really make rational choices?

Harold's presentation will focus on the implications of behavioral economics and demographics on how the business community typically measures market trends. Current industry practice uses objective questions to measure consumer behavior -- how appealing? what color? how many? etc. But this fails to account for the cognitive processes that underlie choice, and fails to take into account differences among age cohorts and the earnings-spending life-cycles. Incorporating elements from both leads to significant changes in how research is conducted, as well as a richer and more realistic understanding of consumer behavior.
