Ethical vanities: Why behaviour does not align with ethical intentions
Professor Timothy Devinney, Pro-Dean for Research and Innovation, will be delivering the first presentation in the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) 2017/18 seminar series.
This talk will focus on 10 years of experimental and field research on ethical related consumption, investment and work choice. The studies show that simple models of intention driven behaviour fail to predict decision outcomes. It also shows that stated preference methods (e.g. surveys), have little, if any relationship to experimental or revealed decision outcomes. One of the implications is that survey based and research that is more distant from realistic outcomes is unlikely to possess sufficient validity to be good models for business and policy makers.
