Fair For You and Indulgent For Me: Product Positioning and Consumer Intentions Toward Ethical Products

This work demonstrates that product positioning (i.e., indulgence versus necessity) can influence justice concern for others. Further, when the product is seen as an indulgence and the consumer is high in justice sensitivity the most positive intentions towards ethical products arise. These effects are driven by justice concerns for others.
