Firm Power, Power Distance Belief, and Consumer Price Fairness Perceptions

This research investigates how firm power influences consumer price fairness perceptions. We also examine how the impact of firm power is moderated by consumers’ power distance beliefs. The findings provide insight into consumer perceptions of the role of firm power in the marketplace, with implications for firms’ pricing strategy.
