Risky Business: the Risk-Reward Trade-Off Is Different For Nonprofit and For-Profit Firms
We find that consumers penalize nonprofits that choose a risky (but high expected value) option over a certain (but low expected value) option, however, they do not similarly penalize for-profit companies that choose the same risk. This pattern occurs because risk-taking activates paternalistic attitudes toward nonprofit organizations, decreasing support.
