Are Consumers Ready For “Made in the World”? Acceptance and Consequence of “Made in the World” Label

Today, very few products are designed and manufactured in one country. Nevertheless, laws require “Made in country” labels. World Trade Organization’s “Made in the World” concept attempts to address this issue. This paper investigates conditions that influence consumer acceptance of such a label and its effect on perceived quality.
