Abstract

The impact of "love of money" on different aspects of consumers' ethical beliefs has been investigated by previous research. In this study we investigate the potential impact of "love of money" on a manager's ethical decision-making in marketing. Another objective of the current study is to investigate the potential impacts of extrinsic and intrinsic religiosity on ethical marketing decision-making. We also include ethical judgments as an element of ethical decision-making. We found "love of money", both dimensions of religiosity, and ethical judgment to have significant impacts on ethical intentions in a marketing situation. In addition to providing an important contribution to the business ethics literature, the findings also have important managerial implications.
