I know they can afford that when they charge so much for their stuff, but I honestly don't even mind anymore.

That said, I still much, much prefer using my desktop, and the fact that I get to upgrade my CPU soon.

This list doesn't really surprise me, but what does however is Marlboro being on there. Do that many people still smoke? Yikes. I can't help but think how much money people spend on cigarettes then think what else they could spend it on. McDonald's being so high is also why obesity rates are what they are, but I'm not surprised about it.

Branding is just a rating of how well recognized a name is, not how good it's actually doing.

I think if Apple had their way they would "brand" you once you bought a product from them and then you became their property.

I have lived in both Tennessee and Colorado and both states have their fair share of overweight people. If u compare obesity between Caucasians I would be it is about the same in both states. Colorado has a huge Caucasian population where weight is a big deal socially compared to Tennessee where there is a huge African American population and it isn't a big deal socially..

Also people in the west have access the same kind of food that people in the south do so you can't blame "Southern Fried".

I understand, I just wish there was some turning point to get this country (US) off the Out of Control high speed train to ruin. Our obsession with Brands is killing us.

I honestly had to look around my house to see what was made outside the US. suffice it to say it was easier to look at the 2 things made in the US. I like may have a $hitload of electronics.

O.T.

My fortune 500 and "losing ground fast company" complains every Qtr that the recession is not over yet and they need to cut more. We've been outsourced to death.

Every company does it, millions of Americans are laid off, and US companies wonder why they cannot meet their profit goals. Companies have collectively "outsourced their profits" as there's no one left to buy their crap. Death by a thousand cuts, of course with no one responsible.

Also on a lighter note my CEO just got fired and took 11 Million out the door as payment for a job well done as he got caught cooking the books by the feds twice now...lovely

I would question that. Branding can be more than a Rating.

Good Branding can make me go to my favorite company even though I know they may charge alot more, and "I won't care". Apple - "example"

Most guys have no idea what Vera Wang is, and they aren't a well known house hold name at least to males anyway lol. Yet rich princesses would kill each other to wear one of these dresses on their wedding day. these princesses could care less if you lowly males recognize the Brand of their dress as they look down their noses at you as they have "Their Day".

Now the other side of the story is Bad Branding, "Enron" I need not tell you what their brand is known for. MCI, Dupont, BP, Leiman Brothers, AIG.

US Automakers Brand's are constantly under attack and they are thanking their lucky stars the government believes in them when no one else does for some good reasons.

The SUV rollover deaths hurt a companies brand and direct customer purchases. So your statement about not affecting how "good it is actually doing" may not fit alot of situations.

All I'm saying is that it's not simple by a longshot.

Advertising, outlandish branding, and continued outrageous profits for boards and top management are the cancer of the US and sadly we're not going to be able to remove it. When the top 10% control 50% of our income and 63% of our private sector they have the power.

The US is not the only economy in the world. If you want something different, move to a country with heavier government regulations. Also, very interesting numbers. Would like to see some citation for that.

As much as people like you talk about stuff like this, it sure does beat living in countries where 2-3% controls 70-75% of the income and private sector. Wow it's fun making up numbers! Seriously though, there are way more countries worse than US then there are countries better.
