Porter Novelli ponders life and death

During a period of economic instability, consumers tend to focus on day-to-day life, rather than considering the long view.

“Our goal with the Intelligent Dialogue series is to provide perspective and stimulate conversation. This is an opportunity for individuals and organizations to demonstrate thought leadership on issues that affect us all,” said Stockman in the paper.
