The Effect of Country-Of-Origin on Product Efficacy

Results from three experiments indicate that the perceived efficacy of products carrying reputable country-of-origin labels were better than the efficacy of the same products when carrying less reputable country-of-origin labels. Titanium frames were perceived as lighter, sunglasses helped see better when facing glaring light, and ear-muffs enabled better hearing despite strong background noise.
