The Impact of Negative Information on Perceptions of Own Country Products: a New Perspective on Country of Origin and Its Influence on Consumer Behavior

Past research on the country of origin construct leaves a number of questions as to the role this plays in consumer purchase decisions.

We report one experiment that shows that negative country image does not necessarily lead to decreased purchase intentions.
