Macromarketing Conference 2017
“Marketing Systems’ Contributions to Society:
Past, Present and Potential”
Queenstown, New Zealand
19-22nd June, 2017
Macromarketing research concerns itself with the interaction among markets, marketing and society. There is little question that the market economy has contributed significantly to the material well-being of most people living in the developed world. That positive contribution may be at a tipping point with an obesity and diabetes epidemic, catastrophic climate change, the casualization of work, or the replacement of work with machinery or artificial intelligence, all on the near horizon. The market economy and marketing as a discipline have come under strong criticism in recent times (Galbraith, 2004; Klein, 2000, 2002) and in the past (Galbraith, 1958) simultaneously with glowing praise (Wilkie and Moore, 1999).
