Research article of Global journal of Economics and Business Administration Effect on Regional integration on Inter-regional Trade in Africa Kossi AYENAGBO1, Badoubatoba Mathieu DISSANI2 1Faculty of Economics and Management, University of Kara, Togo. 2School of Economics, Capital University of Economics and Business, China, 100026. Regional integration offers participating countries advantages including the enlargement of the economic space, increased efficiency and the development of interregional trade. In the African regional communities, these assets are slow to emerge because of insufficient progress in the implementation of protocols, lack of economic diversification and various supply-side constraints.

Obfuscated Signaling: Analyzing and Predicting Changes in Branding in the Fashion Industry

Research article of Global journal of Economics and Business Administration Obfuscated Signaling: Analyzing and Predicting Changes in Branding in the Fashion Industry Solomon Son Palisades Park Jr/Sr High School As time goes on, sentiments change. This statement is perhaps best observed in the mercurial nature of the fashion industry, where styles and brands are constantly evolving. These changes may seem random, or simply a product of what celebrities enjoy at the moment. However, upon closer investigation, an interesting trend appears: the movement of designer brands towards smaller and more simplistic logos. These changes are by no means insignificant; advertising is one of the most important aspects of a brand, and its costs are substantial. Because of these costs, brands only aim to change logos when they feel they need to match a change in fashion or a cultural shift. Thus, by analyzing when and how brands change their logos, researchers can predict and capitalize upon trends in the fashion industry. However, it is still unclear as to why brands have specifically moved to more simplistic appearances. What is the appeal for newer styles to be more discreet, humble, and less ostentatious? To understand this phenomenon, we propose a model that analyzes the change in preferences and motivations in both fashion and culture across generations. Using this model, we achieve results that give further insight into how this knowledge can be used to predict and capitalize upon future trends.
