    Labour Market
    I think that the Labour Market can be effected by Stress Management-Corporate Leaders-and Team Building in many ways.

    Poor leadership that leads to entire organizations experiencing poor teams can equal a workforce that feels a great deal of stress. This can cause workers to need counselling services, or to spend money on specifically to relax. Spa treatments, golf, alcohol.....

    When corporate leaders are successful at building strong teams were people feel important, respected and valued it can lead to more productivity for the company, and there for greater profits=the ability for expansion and upgrading and research and development.

    “Dry and concentrated” — what else would you expect from one of the most expensive whiskies in the world? Help yourself to a little licorice aftertaste. In 2005, a South Korean businessman paid $70,000 for a bottle of Macallan’s 1926, the finest and rarest of the Fine and Rare.

    Grain, water, a wooden barrel and a little time. Whisky is a colorful character with an ever-changing spirit. The subject of literature, culture and folklore throughout the world, finicky booze-hounds have long paid a pretty penny for bottles of the most coveted casks. Pour a finger or two and hit the jump to drink in 10 bottles of whisky that truly break the bank.
    10: Ladybank Single Malt: $4,700
    {http://stylecrave.frsucrave.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/10ladybank.jpg} 10ladybank Liquid Gold: The 10 Most Expensive Whiskies in the World
    Rounding out the top of the list is the Ladybank Distillery in Edinburgh, Scotland. Only 300 bottles of the rare Single Malt Scotch are bottled each year, and to obtain one — you have to become a member of the club. The price of admission? — about $4,700 a year.
    9: The Macallan 1947 Fine and Rare Collection: $6,800
    {http://stylecrave.frsucrave.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/9macallan.jpg} 9macallan Liquid Gold: The 10 Most Expensive Whiskies in the World
    This sherry cask Speyside scotch was bottled for Italy in 1962 before it was repackaged for Macallan’s Fine and Rare line of whiskies. The distillery used peat in its kilns because of the scarcity and high price of coal during WWII, the 1947 bottle, so this 15 year old has an earthy quality not present in modern Macallans.
    8: Chivas Regal Royal Salute 50 year old: $10,000
    {http://stylecrave.frsucrave.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/8chivas.jpg} 8chivas Liquid Gold: The 10 Most Expensive Whiskies in the World
    A swill special enough to be packaged for the 1953 coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the Chivas Regal Royal Salute is a 50 year old Scotch with smoky anise and raisin flavors. Only 255 bottles were made, 10 of which were destined for America, where collectors eagerly poured out $10,000 each.
    7: The Macallan 1939 40 year old Fine and Rare Collection: $10,125
    {http://stylecrave.frsucrave.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/7macallan.jpg} 7macallan Liquid Gold: The 10 Most Expensive Whiskies in the World
    “Peaty and powerful,” with overtones of sweet toffee and dried fruits, Macallan’s 1939 is a 40 year old first bottled in 1979. In 2002, it was added to the distillery’s Fine and Rare line and re-bottled. It can be found today for around $10,125.
    6: Glenfarclas 1955 50 year old: $10,878
    {http://stylecrave.frsucrave.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/6glenfarclas.jpg} 6glenfarclas Liquid Gold: The 10 Most Expensive Whiskies in the World
    Wealthy tasters are warned to overlook this richly scented 50 year old Speyside at their own “peril.” Spicy and silky with a sweet start, this is the oldest batch ever bottled by the Glenfarclas distillery.
    5: Dalmore 50 Year Old Decanter: $11,000
    {http://stylecrave.frsucrave.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/6dalmore.jpg} 6dalmore Liquid Gold: The 10 Most Expensive Whiskies in the World
    Only 60 crystal-cut bottles of this Highland single malt were produced. Filled in 1978, this dark sherry-aged Dalmore has a reputation for being intense and deeply flavored and is considered by many aficionados among the best 50 year olds in the world.
    4: Macallan 55 Year old Lalique Crystal Decanter: $12,500
    {http://stylecrave.frsucrave.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/5macallan.jpg} 5macallan Liquid Gold: The 10 Most Expensive Whiskies in the World
    The eye-catching crystal bottle of Macallan’s 55 year old Lalique was based on a 1910 perfume bottle designed by Rene Lalique . Exotic, with hints of peat smoke, the taste is smooth with lingering citrus overtones.
    3: Glenfiddich 1937 Rare Collection: $20,000
    {http://stylecrave.frsucrave.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/4glenfiddich.jpg} 4glenfiddich Liquid Gold: The 10 Most Expensive Whiskies in the World
    Rare doesn’t describe it. Only one bottle of Glenfiddich’s 1937 Rare Collection was ever produced, and it just might be the oldest bottle of whisky in the world. It was snatched up at a 2006 auction for a bargain $20,000.
    2: Dalmore 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch: $58,000
    {http://stylecrave.frsucrave.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/2dalmore.jpg} 2dalmore Liquid Gold: The 10 Most Expensive Whiskies in the World
    Only a dozen bottles of Dalmore 62 single malt were corked in 1942. One night in 2005, a man bought a bottle for $58,000, and downed it with five of his buddies.
    1: The Macallan 1926 Fine and Rare: $75,000
    {http://stylecrave.frsucrave.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/1macallan.jpg} 1macallan Liquid Gold: The 10 Most Expensive Whiskies in the World

    With the negative impact, how did Lady Gaga sold over 15 million records worldwide along with 40 million singles worldwide? Before we explore the question, followed is an introduction of Lady Gaga.
    Lady Gaga, 24 years old, an American recording artist is truly a global phenomena. In 3 years, she has recruited over 14 million Facebook fans, 5 million Twitter followers and 300 thousand You Tube subscribers (FameCount). She is also the first artist to surpass one billion online video views. This has made her the most popular online living musician today. According to FameCount, “Lady Gaga is not only the most popular music star, she is the most followed global social media entity across any genre, including consumer brands”
    {11.jpg}
    Lady Gaga has two albums so far, The Fame and The Fame Monster. Her albums and singles had topped global music charts, earned hundreds of nominations and won many awards internationally. (See List of awards and nominations received by Lady Gaga on Wikipedia).
    Some of her popular singles include Just Dance, Poker Face, Paparazzi, Bad Romance, Telephone and Alejandro.
    ...
    Lady Gaga has put together a package so unique that it not only gets people's attention and also differitiates herself (the product) from other artists. Singing is not the only element in her music videos and stage performance, she also includes visual theatrics and fashion. Watching her show is like living and experiencing in a “Gaga land”- a place that's unimaginable by normal human beings. See video.
    She wears weird and yet creative costumes everywhere she goes. And that has earned her a spot in every social media every time she appears. Most people just can't turn their eyes away from the I-don't-even-know-how-to-describe costumes and millions follow and mimic her . See pictures

    {the_most_outrageous_x5V4X_640_02.jpg}

    Lady Gaga also packages her product in away that's easy for global consumer to access and at the same time engage these consumers. She puts her music video, interviews or meetings with fans on You tubes. She twits what's going on in her life or links to her performance on Twitter. To the 500 million active Facebook users, Lady Gaga sensationally says “Become my friend on Facebook — I'll never forget you” (Time-Quote of the Day)
    Product Improvement
    Since Lady Gaga was a little girl, she has devoted herself into music and craft. She creates her own performance and is often very picky of how it is done. Lady Gaga continues to improve the quality of her performance by creating new and memorable experience for her fans (consumers). In her engagement with the fans, she is at the front line of detecting their needs and wants. Lady Gaga always claims that what she does she does for her fans.
    Furthermore, with booming online consumers and their font for digital music, Lady Gaga's team has uploaded many high quality music videos to You Tube.
    In an interview, Troy Carter,Founder & CEO, Coalition Media Group and worldwide Manager for Lady Gaga said openly that he and Lady Gaga “create music videos for YouTube.”

    Consumer Perspective
    In an essay, Digital music and how the consume became king, Alain levy the chairman and CEO of EMI Music claims that consumers' turn to digital music has changed how music artists present and market their content.

    According to Wikipedia, “Total revenues for CDs, vinyl, cassettes and digital downloads in the U.S. dropped from a high of $14.6 billion in 1999 to $9 billion in 2008”. The transition had lead to massive layoffs, record store close downs, and artist-roster cuts at major labels.
    With the negative impact, how did Lady Gaga sold over 15 million records worldwide along with 40 million singles worldwide? Before we explore the question, followed is an introduction of Lady Gaga.

    She explains she doesn't mind about people downloading her music for free, "because you know how much you can earn off touring, right? Big artists can make anywhere from $40 million [£28 million] for one cycle of two years' touring. Giant artists make upwards of $100 million. Make music -- then tour. It's just the way it is today."

    Summary:
    Luxury spending greatly influenced the global market. A lot of industries such as advertising, sales & marketing, tourism, entertainment, travel and technology are in whole or in part connected by individuals spending or consumption of the luxury products and services. For example, the advertising industry is a critical part in selling luxury items, it influences people's buying habits and comsumption of goods and services. It drives the economy, these days we are bombarded with tons of information telling us that we need this and that. The economy is driven by people's spending habit. Businesses do not want to target the wealthy people only. They advertise in different, creative and persuasive ways through traditional and new media to target everyday people. Even though luxuries are expensive they still need to reach a broad audience. Rich people may individually buy more, but most of sales comes from everyday people spending money on luxury occasionally. Therefore media that only reaches rich people is of little advantage. And that's why we see a lot of advertising for all our luxury topics.
