This affects both consumers and the environment. But thanks to the EU Commission, Europe's major mobile phone manufacturers have now agreed to adopt a universal charger for data-enabled mobile phones sold in the EU.
New Taiwan business model caters to luxury consumers - 26 Aug 09 For years, the "Made in Taiwan" brand was dismissed as a sign of cheap and often poorly made goods. But today, the island's production lines are full of luxury high-tech Taiwanese innovations, including a $10m custom-made yacht and the ultra-light Acer computer brand. Stan Shih, Acer's founder, is credited for transforming the made-in-Taiwan label and says he convinced the island's top industries to concentrate on giving the customers what they want. Al Jazeera's Steve Chao reports.
Understanding Economics US Economy: Consumers Lose Confidence "Where are the jobs"? Understanding Economics US Economy, US Economy Consumers Lose Confidence "Where are the jobs"? Mounting gloom over the outlook for jobs and wages caused American consumers to lose confidence in September, indicating spending will take time to recover. The Conference Board's sentiment index declined to 48.5 this month, lower than the median forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News and the weakest level since February, according to figures from the New York-based private research group today. Another report showed home prices cooled, hurt by a slump in sales following the end of a government tax incentive. Household purchases, which account for about 70 percent of the world's largest economy, may be constrained by a jobless rate this is projected to average more than 9 percent through 2011. Best Buy Co. is among companies planning to use promotions to spur sales during the year-end holidays in order to overcome shoppers' somber moods. Consumers "certainly are worried about jobs," said David Sloan, a senior economist at 4Cast Inc. in New York. They "are facing considerable headwinds." The median forecast of 75 economists surveyed projected the index would drop to 52.1. Estimates ranged from 48 to 55. The gauge averaged 96.8 during the economic expansion that ended in December 2007. Home prices in 20 cities rose at a slower pace in July from a year earlier, a report from S&P/Case-Shiller showed. The group's index of property values ...

Welcome to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) - featuring narration by Ron Howard www.ConsumerFinance.gov A quick video introduction to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The central mission of the CFPB is to make markets for consumer financial products and services work for Americans—whether they are applying for a mortgage, choosing among credit cards, or using any number of other consumer financial products. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Voiceover: Ron Howard Symbols: Jonothan Jarvis [ The Noun Project [ Sound FX from freesound [ users: Gniffelbaf CGEffex xdrav SpyrosCh zerolagtime rfhache Transcript: Now the story of a market that fell apart, and the new consumer agency that's charged with putting it back together. When you shop for a consumer financial product or service—whether it's a home loan, a credit card, or a student loan—how do you know you're getting the best deal? After wading through all the advertising and page after page of fine print, side-by-side comparisons can be hard. That lack of clarity makes it all too easy to end up with a deal that doesn't work for you and your family. This has real-life consequences—for you and for the whole economy. For years, the financial system has been loaded with more and more dangerous loans, including millions of risky and unaffordable mortgages. Many government agencies supervised different parts of the system, making it nearly impossible for people to hold any one agency accountable. This fractured and outdated system was slow to adjust to ...

Helping Consumers Buy Products that Reflect their Values; How Google's Mobile... Google Tech Talks February, 8 2008 ABSTRACT Internet searching and advertising increasingly plays a role in consumer decisions and purchases, yet pertinent information for making value-judgments is currently awkward to ferret out and certainly not universally accessible or useful. There is rarely a feedback loop aligning vendor or manufacturer's environmental, social or governance policies with a shopper's values, so shoppers, over time, rarely cause industries to change their behavior. There needs to be a way for shoppers to aim their purchasing power at achieving social values of highest regional priority. There needs to be a way to accumulate and redeem "social values rewards". What's missing is timely and impactful ***ysis of a candidate purchases' impact on the Shopper's family, region and planet (expressed according to their values), so that the purchaser can more easily make informed purchasing decisions. With some modifications to Google ads and Google product search, Google could solidify the feedback loop and help consumers, by their actions, build a greener and better world.

GRITtv: William K. Black: Elizabeth Warren & Consumers Former regulator, savings & loan investigator, and current Braintruster at the Roosevelt Institute William K. Black says that if Elizabeth Warren isn't appointed to head the consumer protection agency passed as part of the financial reform bill, it will be a clear sign that the agency isn't going to protect consumers at all. While Warren has done the research in the field for 20 years, he notes, other candidates preferred by Treasury Secretary Geithner have fallen more into the Rubin/Summers camp of deregulators. Black joins us via Skype from Kansas City, where he's professor of Economics and Law at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, to break down the problems with the financial reform bill and make the case for Warren as the only way for real consumer protection.

Civic v Corolla v Mazda 3 Consumer Comparison by As so many Hollywood blockbusters have proven, if something works once, why not try it again? Last year, we decided to try something completely different by inviting six regular consumers to do a comparison test of three popular midsize sedans — without the sponsorship of a specific manufacturer. They poked and prodded each car using the same criteria Edmunds editors use when evaluating a vehicle. The result was an enlightening experience for the consumers involved, the editors and, judging by feedback, the readers at home. For the sequel, we rounded up three economy sedans: the two best-selling models (Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic) and the one we consider to be the best (Mazda 3). We also invited a fourth dark-horse contender to the party, but the Mitsubishi Lancer that showed up featured a fancy stereo, a sunroof and a $3000-higher price tag. It was disqualified before the test started for being too far out of the price range. As such, the remaining three contenders were priced within $479 of each other, giving our testers the chance to see how much equipment each brand provides for basically the same amount of dough. Each car was also right off the boat (or train), with miles in the low hundreds or less. In other words, nothing was given an undue advantage. Here's a rundown of the cars.
