The following chapter “Functionalism: Descriptive and Normative” justiﬁes Alderson’s provision of a normative — rather than descriptive as he is often accused of providing — theory of the market place in Dynamic Marketing Behavior Introduction to Part II 37 (1965).

This is in keeping with Alderson’s goal of improving the efﬁciency of the market place, and with it society.
