The judgments that the individual gained in childhood are determinative in the perception of consumption and behavior as a consumer. In childhood, cartoons are watched repeatedly. In recent years, subconscious placements are frequently seen in cartoons, mostly in foreign productions. Subconscious messages are messages prepared below the awareness thresholds of individuals. Also, the effects of these messages on children are more pronounced than adults. The prediction that the subconscious can direct the decisions and behaviors of the individual, therefore, offers an area of intervention for those who want to have an influence on the behavior of individuals. These messages, which are exposed without consent and avoidance, are used in cartoons with remarkable frequency. The subliminal messages hidden in these films support the efforts of films to find a place in children's awareness, to put heroes into their imagination, and thus to become consumers of all the products of the film. In this study, first of all, the concepts of subliminal messages and consumer socialization are introduced and the possible effects expected with subliminal messages intentionally placed in many cartoons are discussed.</em></p> 2020-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Rating Academy Ar-Ge Yazılım Yayıncılık Eğitim Danışmanlık ve Organizasyon Ticaret Ltd.

However, in conflict of interest situations, independent board members are not always enabled to oppose senior managers, particularly CEOs, who put their personal interests above those of shareholders. In such cases, the efforts of independent directors to monitor managers will be unsuccessful, which, in turn, may result in the latter receiving unjustified personal benefits at the expense of shareholders. Active participation of independent directors in resolving situations where interests of these groups do not align ensures the mitigation of tension and the proper functioning of the company. Thus, the establishment of cases where independent outsiders cannot fulfill their basic duties of shielding shareholders appears to be rather a significant issue. </em></p> 2020-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Rating Academy Ar-Ge Yazılım Yayıncılık Eğitim Danışmanlık ve Organizasyon Ticaret Ltd.
