We examine the behavior of a profit maximizing monopolist in a horizontal differentiation model in which consumers differ in their degree of social respon- sibility (SR) and consumers SR is dynamically influenced by habit persistence. The model outlines parametric conditions under which (consumer driven) corpo- rate social responsibility is an optimal choice compatible with profit maximizing behavior.

Abstract

We examine the behavior of a profit maximizing monopolist in a horizontal differentiation model in which consumers differ in their degree of social respon- sibility (SR) and consumers SR is dynamically influenced by habit persistence. The model outlines parametric conditions under which (consumer driven) corpo- rate social responsibility is an optimal choice compatible with profit maximizing behavior.
