7M Sest: a New Integrative Model to Illustrate How Social Class, Economic System-Justification, and System Threats Jointly Influence Consumer Preferences

We test a new integrative model that explains how social class, economic system-justification, and relevant system threats jointly affect consumer preferences. Our findings address inconsistencies in system-justification theory and help to explain consumer preferences for offerings that are perceived as more symbolic of or antagonistic to the free-market economic system.
