The Effect of Corporate Ethical Actions on Consumer Pwom: the Role of Emotional and Cognitive Processes

We investigate emotional and cognitive pathways between corporate ethical actions and consumer PWOM. Results showed that social justice values interact with corporate ethical actions in eliciting awe, gratitude, and elevation; however, only gratitude impacts PWOM. Company evaluation and identification were also significant mediators and were regulated by social justice values.
