Brand USA: Can We Change the Image of the World’s Most Visible Country?

Despite the limitations of Brand USA as a policy and public/private partnership the American brand endures.  A strong brand elicits strong feelings. Given its visibility and superpower status, I would argue that the United States, not Apple, is the world’s most valuable brand.  The future value of the brand rests in the behavior of citizens, policymakers and how these behaviors are perceived by the rest of the world. A quasi-governmental organization pushing social media blasts to potential international visitors can do little to change these perceptions.
