    The Impact of Transformation Expectations on Conspicuous Consumption: A Cross-Cultural Comparison 

    Amonrat Thoumrungroje; Pattana Boonchoo (2015-02)

We advocate that (a) consumers who believe they can transform themselves in various aspects through product consumption are more likely to engage in conspicuous consumption, and (b) the relationships between transformation expectations and conspicuous consumption vary across cultures. The delineation of relationships propose...

    Suppasit Sornsri (2015-01)

    The focal construct in this study is the relationship quality between the hospitals and the patients. The previous studies had developed relationship quality dimensions mostly in terms of “want to” aspect and tested their model in various B2B and B2C contexts. However, in several long-term relationships, “ought to” and “have to” aspects of relationship are also important in helping create the relationship longevity in spite of dissatisfaction in the relationship. Very few empirical researches on relationship quality have captured these dimensio...
