E9. “Power Distance, Social Aspiration, and Fair Trade Products” – the Interaction Effect of Power Distance Belief and Status Motivation on Fair Trade Product Consumption

Marrying these research results, we conducted one preliminary field study and lab experiments to demonstrate that when PDB is high, high status motive individuals are more likely to purchase fair-trade products.
