Sense of Power and Message Framing in Conservation Behaviors

This paper explores how individual’s sense of power influences the effectiveness of message framing in a conservation context (recycling). When distance is far, loss (gain) frames works better with low (high) power. When distance is close, gain frames works better with low power; frames don’t matter for high power.
