The Numbers (Never) Lie: Corporate Fraud, Generalized Suspicion and Investment Behavior
A dual information processing framework (Chaiken and Trope 1999) was used to investigate whether corporate fraud on individual investment decisions. The results of two experiments suggest that corporate fraud leads to a broad defensive bias towards stock investment in second-party firms due to its effects on generalized suspicion. Further, the prior reputation of the second-party firm did little to buffer the effects of generalized suspicion. Process measures indicated that these generalized effects of fraud occurred through biased heuristic processing, where second-party firms were essentially stereotyped as untrustworthy.
