Consumer Loyalty and Brand Marketing Programs in an Emerging Economy: Evidence from The Automobile Industry (Published)

The study examined the impact of brand marketing programs on brand loyalty of automobile users in an emerging economy context. Adopting a positivist paradigm, a quantitative approach was employed. Using a cross-sectional survey, data was collected from 700 respondents. Scales of measures were evaluated using exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis after which consumer loyalty segments were created using cluster analysis. Logistic regression was carried out to evaluate the effect of brand marketing programs on consumer loyalty. The study revealed a positive and significant association between brand marketing efforts and consumers’ purchase decisions and loyalty to automobile brands. Four brand marketing efforts were also found to be significantly associated with the two segments (high and low involvement) at varying degrees.

The Mojo, Dodgy, And Dingy Dominance of Domestic Deeds on Foreign Direct Investment in Emerging and Transition Economies (Published)

Insufficiencies of empirical research were found regarding the flow of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) to Emerging and Transition Economics (ETEs) as compared to other economies.  This study was designed to analyst domestic deeds that positively, negatively, and horridly affected the flow of FDI to ETEs and determine if they were the same for all ETEs.  The results paralleled existing FDI literature including extensive and established theories.  First, bivariate and multiple regressions analysis were conducted to determine whether ETEs domestic deeds (political stability, domestic credit, level of GDP-ETEs, level of corruption, and availability of mineral resources) significantly impact on the inflow of FDI to their countries. The correlation amongst GDP and FDI was significant (r =.91, p < .01), political stability was significant (r =-.23, p <.05), and availability of domestic credit was significant (r =.27, p < .05). Additionally, analysis on regional deeds variables (telephone lines and RI) revealed that telephone lines was a robust predictor of FDI (ß = .38, p < .05) and RI (ß = .57, p < .05).

Another objective to study is whether this model is specification in its applicability or it may be applied on other medium-income economies because income inequality and poverty are the common problems of almost all developing countries. Methodology of study: This is a qualitative research study in which we have studied different characteristics in general terms and policies introduced by Brazilian government during 2000-2010 period. We have used secondary data extracted from the database of IMF, World Bank, US Federal Reserves, US Bureau of Economic Analysis and relevant journals. Findings & Results: Our study finds hat poverty in Brazil has reduced from 17 percent in 2000 to 8 percent in 2010. The evidence also shows that the wealth of the richest 20 percent of upper class was decreased during 2000-2010 due to high tax rates payment and the income of lowest 20 percent quintile was increased from 2.6 percent to 3.5 percent in the same period. It shows that the income of lower class was increased while the wealth and income of upper class was decreased during 2000-2010. The study also reveals that about half of poor segment of Brazilian population has come out of poverty trap in a short span of just 10 years.
