Politics At the Mall: the Moral Foundations of Boycotts

I examine how political ideology influences the purchase and abstention from buying for political reasons. I show that the boycotts and buycotts of liberals and conservatives are influenced by their unique moral concerns. In addition, liberals’ greater concern for harm and fairness makes them more likely to boycott and buycott.
