The Effect of Social Exclusion on Consumer Shoplifting

We examine the effects of social exclusion on shoplifting for shoplifters versus non-shoplifters. Results show that socially excluded shoplifters are more likely to shoplift than socially excluded non-shoplifters and that this effect is moderated by the nature of the product (hedonic vs. utilitarian).
