Labroo Every day, consumers make a myriad of decisions that have the ability to affect the greater good, which we define as the collective well-being of the broader social group.
Given their broad communal consequences, such decisions are of great interest to a variety of constituencies, including policy makers, non-profits, communities, and marketers, as well as individuals.
Accordingly, theory-driven inquiry into the antecedents and consequences of consumer behaviors that serve the greater good offers great theoretical and practical value.
Consumer psychology over the past decades has made substantive contributions to the understanding of consumer behavior; however, research truly motivated by impacting greater good has remained limited. To be clear, there is a difference between research motivated by the greater good versus research that is relevant to the greater good.
In the former, the genesis of the research is a problem motivated by greater good; in the latter, greater good is referenced as possible loosely-related implication drawn from a broader inquiry.
The research could propose novel theories of how to promote greater good, question whether outcomes stereotypically thought of as generating greater good indeed serve the greater good, or even propose downstream problems that a quest for greater good might create.
Applications of existing consumer decision making theories to promote the greater good are welcome, but only as long as a greater good problem is central to the paper and the application is consequential. Some potential not binding areas of investigation include: Contributing to the Greater Good by Helping the Self: Promoting personal saving behavior, which reduces the cost of social support Promoting personal health and mental well-being, which reduces the cost of social isolation and loneliness Promoting personal empowerment, which benefits the larger collective e.
