An Attributional Explanation of Consumers’ Unexpected Attitudes and Behavior Toward Poor-Nutritional Products, With Implications For Childhood Obesity
This study (1) advances an alternative psychological mechanism, which explains unexpected consumers’ attitudes and behavior; (2) proposes a mediating role of attributions of responsibility between government regulation and product satisfaction; (3) offers a new conceptualization of the government regulation construct (i.e., moderator of attributions of responsibility/self-serving bias).
