PARIS — Bernard Arnault kept an upbeat tone as LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton reported flat net profits for 2008, but a 4 percent increase in fourth-quarter revenues to 5.23 billion euros, or $7.01 billion.
In fact, he said Louis Vuitton, which kept a double-digit sales pace in the quarter, would open more than 25 stores this year, and that the world’s largest luxury group would not cut its advertising spend as it seeks to win market share and keep the luxury dream alive.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
