An experimental study of two dimensions of country-of-origin (manufacturing country and branding country) using intrinsic and extrinsic cues
This research examines simultaneously external and internal cues to investigate the impact of two dimensions of country-of-origin (manufacturing country and branding country) on product evaluations. Using an experimental design, multiple products and multiple countries are studied. The power of the analysis exceeds 95%. Effect sizes are also computed to provide the relative importance of various relevant variables. Overall, the findings indicate that it is beneficial for a seller to strategically focus on intrinsic quality, choose a developed country as the branding country, while deriving cost reductions by shifting manufacturing facilities to developing countries.
