An Empirical Analysis of the Strategic Use of Corporate Social Responsibility

Donald Siegel () and Donald Vitaliano ()

Journal of Economics & Management Strategy, 2007, vol. 16, issue 3, 773-792

Abstract: "Recent theories of the strategic use of corporate social responsibility (CSR) emphasize the role of information asymmetry and how CSR is likely to be incorporated into a firm's product differentiation strategy. A key empirical implication of these theories is that firms selling experience or credence goods are more likely to be socially responsible than firms selling search goods. Using firm-level data, we report evidence that is consistent with this hypothesis." Copyright 2007, The Author(s) Journal Compilation (c) 2007 Blackwell Publishing.
