Choosing Between American and Chinese Brands
In this article, the authors examine how Chinese consumers’ choice between American and Chinese brands is influenced by product categories (utilitarian and hedonic) and levels of justification. Specifically, the authors find that in without-justification condition, Chinese consumers generally prefer American brands regardless of product categories; but in with-justification condition, their preference varies across categories: they prefer American brands in hedonic category but prefer Chinese brands in utilitarian category.
