Crime and Punishment Through the Political Lens: How Liberals Forgive, and Conservatives Punish Ethical Brand Users
We propose that political orientation moderates desire for punishment toward users of ethical (vs. conventional) brands committing moral transgressions. That is, liberals (conservatives) punish ethical brand users committing moral transgressions less (more) than conventional brands users. Stereotyping of the transgressor drives such responses. We discuss marketplace-stereotyping, attribute-formation, and ethical-branding implications.
