Research Notes: Mita Sujan

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

SujanMitaMita Sujan’s paper “Temporal mindsets and self-regulation: The motivation and implementation of self-regulatory behaviors” has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Consumer Psychology. The paper, co-authored with Denise Buhrau (PhD ’10), focuses on implementation of self-regulation. Using data from Tulane University’s 10,000-steps-a-day fitness program, the authors argue that individuals with low consideration of future consequences (CFC) are more motivated to act when messages provide specific recommendations with the necessary contextual details for personalization (“when,” “where” and “with whom) that make planning accessible and easy. The study is part of a larger line of research aimed at better understanding failures of self-regulation, which Sujan says are at the core of the nation’s obesity and debt epidemics and which result in substantial costs to the economy. Sujan is the Malcolm Woldenberg Chair of Marketing at Tulane University’s A. B. Freeman School of Business.

WangLinglingLingling Wang’s paper “Culture and R2,” co-authored with Cheol Eun and Steven Xiao, has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Financial Economics. In the paper, the authors find that stock prices co-move more in culturally tight and collectivistic countries and less in culturally loose and individualistic countries. Their study suggests that culture is an important omitted variable in the literature that investigates cross-country differences in stock price co-movements.

Research Notes: Prof. Eric Hamerman

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Eric Hamerman’s paper “Conditioned Superstition: Desire for Control and Consumer Brand Preferences,” co-authored with Gita Johar, professor of business at Columbia University, has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Consumer Research. The paper explores the notion of conditioned superstition, the idiosyncratic superstitions people form through everyday associations between a product and an outcome. The authors find that people are more likely to engage in superstitious behavior when they have a high level of desire to control an uncertain outcome combined with a low perception of their ability to do so. Furthermore, Hamerman and Johar find that after engaging in superstitious behaviors, individuals are more likely to predict a successful outcome. Hamerman is an assistant professor of marketing at the A. B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University.
