“Herr Abbott, you doo have zee Haider een you. Nurture yor inner Jorg” said Leni. “Und especially ven you’re cross – ze pession, zee indeegnation. You go from orange too ze red!”

Ha, well, heck, Leni. But never green.

Look, ummm, Leni. Sir Cliff has brought a creative and bold suite of ideas to the table. A man of vision, he’s one heck of a mate, and err does a lot of great work for charity.

Yess, Herr Abott. So hendsome und zee little beach sheck in zee Barbados…vot’s zee big idea?

Well, actually, there are two. Two big ideas. We will leverage each through autumn rallies after using the late summer auction as an initial, umm, launch platform…

Vell, Tony, vot, vot, vot?

1. Produce the new ‘MeinPantz’ swimwear range at the Correct Corp facility on Nauru!

2. Market the range through Barbados. Sir Cliff has indicated that he’s willing to help with shoots, model management etcetera, etc. Leni, humm, perhaps let’s not mention this yet to Julie, but Sir Cliff feels that your’s truly could, ermmm, actually model some of the pants…

Looking at intrinsic and extrinsic values & motivation seems timely… 

EXTRINSIC VALUES:

CONFORMITY, TO ‘FIT IN’ WITH OTHER PEOPLE.

IMAGE, TO LOOK ATTRACTIVE TO OTHER PEOPLE IN TERMS OF BODY AND CLOTHING.

FINANCIAL SUCCESS. TO BE WEALTHY AND MATERIALLY SUCCESSFUL RELATIVE TO OTHERS.ACHIEVEMENT. PERSONAL SUCCESS THROUGH DEMONSTRATING COMPETENCE ACCORDING TO SOCIAL STANDARDS.POWER SOCIAL STATUS AND PRESTIGE, CONTROL OR DOMINANCE

INTRINSIC VALUES:

AFFILIATION, TO HAVE SATISFYING RELATIONSHIPS WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS. SELF-ACCEPTANCE . TO FEEL COMPETENT AND AUTONOMOUS. COMMUNITY FEELING, PRESERVING AND ENHANCING THE WELFARE OF THOSE WITH WHOM ONE IS IN FREQUENT PERSONAL CONTACT (THE ‘IN-GROUP’). UNIVERSALISM, UNDERSTANDING, APPRECIATION, TOLERANCE, AND PROTECTION FOR THE WELFARE OF ALL PEOPLE AND FOR NATURE.

The Public Interest Research Council is an independent charity integrating key research on climate change, energy & economics – widening its audience and increasing its impact. Examination of the intrinsic/extrinsic paradigm is an important element of their recent paper, Think Of Me As Evil :

 “Despite its alarmist title, this is a careful evaluation of the costs and benefits of advertising. It makes a good case, on economic, social, and cultural grounds, for respite from the all-pervasive advocacy of consumerism.”
