They target poverty-stricken Europeans’ demand for cheaper goods in the midst of an economic crisis. Unilever — the third-largest consumer goods company in the world, which manufactures hundreds of brands like Aviance, Ben & Jerry’s, Dove and Lipton — will be doing just that. Jan Zijderveld, head of Unilever’s European division, said in an interview with Financial Times Deutschland that “poverty is returning to Europe.” He speculates that sales can be increased by providing smaller and cheaper branded products. With changing economic conditions, shopping habits change as well: “If a consumer in Spain only spends €17 when they go shopping, then I’m not going to be able to sell them washing powder for half of their budget,” Zijderveld said. Unilever has already begun altering its branding to adapt to the challenge of low growth in the developed world. In Spain, it introduced Surf detergent in packages for only five

By: Jane Hamsher I still can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that Obama thought it was a good idea, in midst of 9.6% unemployment, and on the day after the census bureau announces that 1 in 7 Americans are living in poverty, to show up at the gated Connecticut mansion of a guy named Rich Richman and tell a privileged few at a private $30000 a plate fundraiser that people who see their glass “half empty” are pessimists and that the health care bill represents “the most productive, progressive legislative session in at least a generation.” The people in Connecticut who couldn’t afford $30000 to attend an event that raised $1 million for the DNC might not see it that way: Sept. 19–Connecticut regulators in recent days approved increases of more than 20 percent on some health plans starting Oct. 1, including a series of rates requested by Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield, by far the largest health insurer in the state….The higher prices, however, are a glimpse of what may be in store later this year when insurers propose new rates for 2011. The major difference between rising prices this year and years past is the cost of new benefits added to health plans starting Thursday as mandated by the sweeping reform approved by Congress in March. Insurers say the cost of new benefits will increase prices more than 20 percent for certain plans. When Obama was selling his health care plan to the public on June 22, 2010, he said that the changes mandated by the health care bill
