Either marketing works, and it is a powerful tool for change, in which case it must admit responsibility for the absolutely central role it has played in creating the ever-widening inequality between rich and poor during the last century; or else it is nothing, and has enriched itself over the decades without giving any value in return, and can play no useful part in the huge tasks which lie ahead for humanity in the twenty-first century. CHAPTER 2 What brands do for countries There are many different ways of telling the economic history of the world, and there have been many different explanations for how some fairly small and apparently unpromising countries managed to become extremely rich, while other large and fertile lands have never managed to drag themselves above the level of subsistence.

Agricultural products supply nearly all of Uganda’s foreign exchange earnings, with coffee alone (of which Uganda is Africa’s leading producer) accounting for about 21 per cent of the country’s exports in 2001; robusta coffee makes up some 90 to 95 per cent of this figure.

I would argue that the development of international brands is, in today’s globalized world, as inevitable and essential for the growth of an individual economy as the development of domestic brands has been in the past: for many countries, this kind of development simply can’t happen too soon. It is said that American brands have an advantage on the global market because they have first been developed in one of the toughest domestic markets on earth. In fact, the experience of having to hold one’s own in a developing country under the onslaught of highly sophisticated and massively funded European, Japanese and American brands is probably just as tough a test.
