Howard William Smith () and John Ernest Thanassoulis ()

No 388, Economics Series Working Papers from University of Oxford, Department of Economics

Abstract: This paper surveys new research concerning bargaining within supply chains and its implications for buyer power.  The paper explores the implications of the research on supermarket supply chains for primary, secondary and private-label branded goods.  The empirical base in support of the theories is also discussed.  This paper is an initial draft of a chapter for the book "Private Labels, Brands and Competition Policy" (OUP) edited by Ariel Ezrachi and Ulf Bernitz.
