Setting The Research Agenda For The Global Village: Consumer'S Public Interest


  • Kinsey, Jean D.


As 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. Six major research issues are proposed that involve consumption externalities. 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.
