More Stuff. The next step was to safeguard the manufacturer's position by applying pressure on the wholesaler from the other end. Hence advertising - the direct link with the buying public. The point is that at this time the basic motive for advertising was to stabilize demand, thus allowing regular large-scale production, free from the whims of the wholesaler. Partly because of this the advertising tended to be based on the idea of reliability and guaranteed quality. It was, of course, partly because reliable quality was still rather rare. The next stage developed from the first breaking of the chains - a period of manufacturer domination that lasted from about to It was a period of great concentration in numbers of manufacturers - from hundreds or even thousands in some product fields to the oligopoly situation we see so often today.
The brand was used to concentrate demand on a relatively small number of lines, and the basis of growing profits became economies of scale - in production, raw material purchasing, distribution, investment capital, and so on. In keeping with this, the role of advertising was now seen as one of promoting growth - regular increases in sales volume. The old role of stabilizing demand became rather taken for granted. A key factor in the domination was that manufacturers could control their consumer prices, with the full backing of the law.
Wholesalers became reduced more to distributing agents. At the same time, retailers' profit margins came under increasing pressure, with manufacturers more or less able to dictate both their buying and selling prices. Then in the sixties this manufacturer domination began to wane, and retailers began to redress the balance of power. They got new management who saw the profit opportunities and themselves started using economies of scale - in buying, warehousing, store size and location, self-service.

They started taking initiatives as entrepreneurs - branding goods like cheese, meat and vegetables; and introducing new products like delicatessen. Of course, a key factor in all this was the ending of Resale Price Maintenance.
One effect was that of increasing the concentration within the retail trade, as marginal or specialist retailers were forced out of business. And, of course, more immediately the retailer gained much greater control over buying and selling prices - a means of applying his increased power.
So is today a return to the situation the manufacturer was in during the period of wholesaler domination in the late nineteenth century? In many ways it is. I think it is clear that in the s retailers will concentrate still more. There will be more big mergers. There will be increasing pressure on retailers' margins, through conventional competition, through retailers' margins, through conventional competition, through the competition of other forms of selling, such as discount stores, mail order and direct selling, through rising costs in an inevitably labour-intensive business, and so on.
Retailers will undoubtedly pass on these pressures to manufacturers, and the fourth, fifth and sixth brands in any market will find it increasingly tough going. Ultimately some balance will be reached.

The public will demand more variety. There might ultimately be legislation, but it seems more likely to be a Monopolies Commission type restricting the growth of an individual chain than anything on the lines of Robinson Patman.

In fact, I think it will be the retailers themselves who will set the limit. After all, they need strong brands. The problem for manufacturers is that they do not need very many strong brands. In other words, I think one must see the s as being a continuation of the trends in the s. The question the manufacturer must ask is not how to stop them, but how to exploit them. This is where it is useful to look at history. The manufacturer broke away from wholesale domination before. Can he do it again? I believe that he can, and that the principles by which he did it can be applied again.
But there are certain crucial changes in the context which mean that the approach will have to be rather different from the nineteenth-century approach and very different from the approach in recent years. First, I can't see increased economies of scale helping the manufacturer as much as in the first half of the century.
