A recently published book by Dan Hill, _Emotionomics_,
was the subject of a brief commentary by Michael Dawson
at http://mrzine.monthlyreview.org/dawson111207.html.
This topic is related to discussions which Jurriaan and I
and others have participated in on OPE-L over the years 
concerning  *consumer behavior*. 
The following quote from Hill, via Dawson, succinctly
puts forward the author's proposition:
"Breakthroughs in brain science have revealed that
people are primarily emotional decision-makers....  
Emotions are central, not peripheral, to both marketplace 
and workplace behavior.  As a result, companies able to 
identify, quantify, and thereby act on achieving emotional
buy-in or acceptance from consumers and employees
alike will enjoy a tremendous competitive advantage."
In solidarity, Jerry
