Bubble Living: Social Class and Contextual Influences on Immigrant Consumer Acculturation in a Non-Western Cultural Context
This research highlights the necessity of incorporating contextual influences in investigations of consumer acculturation. We focus on immigrants from highly industrialized countries and their adaptation in a less developed country. We find that the adaptation processes are mitigated by “life lived in a bubble”, social class and cheap labor.
