Do You Trust the System? Interaction Effect Between Perceived Economic Mobility and Socioeconomic Status on Fair Market Ideology and Consumer Responses

This research provides convergent evidence that consumers with higher perceived economic mobility hold a higher degree of fair market ideology than their counterparts, which in turn affects various consumer responses, such as price-quality belief. This effect is stronger for consumers with a low socioeconomic status.
