In the simplest model of a production system we should make room for two sorts of intermediaries — one between primary producers and manufacturers, the other between manufacturers and consumers, what are commonly called the distributive trades. This chapter focuses on the resemblances and differences between these two sorts of intermediaries. These distributive trades are referred to as secondary merchants, contrasting them with the primary merchants, who deal in primary products.

Keywords: economic theory; pricing; secondary merchants; intermediaries
