oh…yet another good marketing quote

Posted by:

Suppliers and especially manufacturers have market power because they have information about a product or a service that the customer does not and cannot have, and does not need if he can trust the brand. This explains the profitability of brands.
– Peter Drucker

James, I think your cover's blown!
