Hi. I work for a prominent expert network working in partnership with zintro. We would like to source multiple experts to lead a roundtable discussion about russian debt. Specifically:
1. What is the likelihood of russia government debt defaulting?
2. Compare the russian debt/economy with the 1998 debt crisis. Better or worse? How will it affect large cap russian companies?
The ideal expert will be able to compare the debt crisis of argentina to russia.
We are willing to pay a stipend for participating experts.+36 Other Responses

topic and prompt
apple inc., which has struggled in emerging markets because of the price of its new iphones, has devised a strategy for india that’s starting to pay off: it’s pushing older models that offer cachet at affordable prices. The iphone 4, which was released in the u.S. In june 2010, is still available. So is the iphone 4s that went on sale in october 2011.
“you flaunt an iphone, but you don’t flaunt an android,” said punit mathur, a 42-year-old vice president of a digital media company who switched to a new iphone 4s from a nexus 4. An iphone 5s that would cost 53,500 rupees ($874) is too expensive, “but the 4s is still an upgrade,” he said.
Apple doubled sales in a market growing faster than china and the u.S. As it tries to close the gap with samsung electronics co. And domestic makers micromax informatics ltd. And karbonn mobiles india. The strategy is critical to apple’s success in a nation where two-thirds of the population live on less than $2 a day -- and it may become a model for other emerging countries.
“once apple has fully proven this model in india, you’re going to see them roll it out to other markets,” said ken hyers, an analyst with strategy analytics in north carolina. “particularly brazil, russia, indonesia, the other large emerging markets where they want to gain market share.”
what are your thoughts about apple’s marketing strategy?
