Social Indicators and Marketing was edited by Robert L. Clewett and Jerry C. Olson. This work is a collection of papers presented at 1972 and 1973 conferences focusing social indicators in context of marketing and business. Fifteen papers are organized in two main parts: social indicators and business response to social values. Part I examines social indicators and their usefulness to marketing and business in general. Part II explains how businesses are responding to changing social values and the tools that can be developed to guide their responses.
