An Induction-Deduction Model of Consumer Inference: Implications For Selecting Optimal Csr Strategy

We propose a theoretical model elucidating how consumers make inferences from firms’ CSR behaviors. Through multiple studies, we show that the conceptual distance between a firm’s CSR action and its product can significantly impact consumers’ inferences about the product, and that this inference differs significantly in stimulus- vs. memory-based tasks.
