Setting The Research Agenda For The Global Village: Consumer'S Public Interest
AbstractAs consumers live in more modern urbanized places, their satisfaction with their own consumption activities depends more and more on the consumption habits of their neighbors.

They are: the Quantity and Quality of Food, Environmental Pollution, Investment in Human Capital, Limited Institutional Capacity, Income Disparities, and Illegal Drugs. Research questions are posed for each issue after a brief discussion of research design.
