The Depression brought conflicts among professional consumer experts and widespread movement to fight for a variety of consumer aims emerged. This chapter outlines how advertisers and consumerist reformers fought over regulatory proposals, the right to represent consumers, and the direction of mass consumption. Consumers' Research entered into an open battle with corporate enterprises and spearheaded anti-market sentiments and challenges to business prerogatives. At the same time, advertisers played a leading role in the war against New Deal regulation and the emergent consumer movement.
