ABSTRACT
The article examines the role of both buyer and seller in manufacturing process. Now caught in the middle of a financial meltdown, many companies are finding out that determining the best price for their end products is just as important as what it costs. Over the past year, the sliding economy has taken pricing in two distinct directions.
