Inter-Racial Couples, Household Decision-Making and Contextual Influences on Consumer Acculturation

Wakiuru Wamwara-Mbugua, Wright State University, USA
This research examines household decision-making among immigrant inter-racial couples in a developing country. Prior research demonstrated that as a country becomes more developed, husband dominance in household decision-making decreases. Our findings demonstrate that immigrants from more developed countries integrate traditional modes of household decision-making when they immigrate to less-developed countries.
