Not the stock market of today that is littered with high speed algorithms making most of the trades happen in milliseconds, but for the true stock market of tomorrow that is counting on the rise of the iconic brands for the wealth of nations. stock market. In the real-time Web, the value of branding could become a game of diminishing returns. It seems like a ridiculous statement, doesn't it? Then again, one look at your investments and you may think otherwise.
