A Regulatory Focus Approach to Consumers’ Moral Decision Making

The authors examine how a consumer’s inherent or situationally induced regulatory focus influences whether he or she regulates or repeats moral consumption decisions. Findings indicate that balancing effects occur for consumers with a strong promotion focus while consistency is more pronounced for prevention-focused consumers.
