HOW PROXIMAL DEPICTIONS OF UNHEALTHY FOOD INFLUENCE CONSUMPTION BEHAVIOR

In this paper, we examine the influence of pictures in food advertisements – varying in spatial (or physical) distance and healthiness of the depicted product. Specifically, we propose that proximal depiction of unhealthy (vs. healthy) food products can substantially increase an individual’s desire to eat upon one-time exposure to the ad picture.

However, multiple exposure to similar proximal depictions is likely to reverse the effect – by inducing a faster decline in expected enjoyment of the depicted food.

THE EFFECTS OF CEO’S FINANCIAL ASPIRATIONS ON FAMILY FIRM’S CORRUPTION: EVIDENCE FROM A FIELD SURVEY AND AN EXPERIMENT.

This research examines how financial aspirations can influence organizational corrupt behaviors in a family business context. We integrate insights from behavioral theory of the firm, goal-setting theory, and family business’ literature on socio- emotional wealth to examine the relationship between CEO’s financial aspirations and the likelihood of a firm engaging in corruption.

WHEN SUPERVISOR’S SUPPORT BACKFIRES: THE ROLE OF PERCEIVED SUPPORT IN UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR

Perceived supervisor support is employees’ general views concerning the degree to which supervisors value their contributions and care about their well-being and a lot of research has focused on the positive outcomes associated with support such as employees’ lower turnover and increased affective commitment.

In this research, we look at the tricky relationship of supervisor support and ethics. Unethical behavior is typically thought of as having features of self-interest. We explore a unique class of unethical behavior where employees can indulge in unethical behaviors that aim to protect and benefit their organizations and leaders without any direct self-interest.
