Consumer’S Local-Global Identity and Price-Quality Associations

Three studies show that consumers’ degree of local identity, but not global identity, increases their price-quality associations. Perceived quality difference among the comparison objects is the key process underlying these effects. Therefore, product type (services vs. goods) influences the strengths of the relationship between local-global identity and price-quality associations.
