In mid to long term, brands are ONLY winning because they deliver a by consumers defined/desired quality. It's up to marketing to understand their consumers and either develop what they want, or what they (might) need. Which is not the same as creating artificial needs. And it's up to advertising to communicate the above in an effective way. That is the way it works. Not vice versa.
