Consumers’ Local-Global Identity and Price Sensitivity: the Role of Sacrifice Mindset

Based on social-identity literature, we propose when local (vs. global)-identity is salient, consumers tend to be in a sacrifice mindset, resulting in less price sensitivity. Results from multiple studies show support for our theorizing regarding the effect of local-global identity on price sensitivity and the mediation role of sacrifice mindset.
