Roundtable: Was Captain Kirk Wrong? Consumer Behavior Research and the “Prime Directive”

This roundtable seeks to encourage open discussion of possible unintended negative consequences of well-intentioned consumer research. We seek to increase awareness of our assumptions about our ability to determine what enhances consumer well-being, and to promote a dialog toward assessing and minimizing any possible harm from our work.
