PURPOSE OF THE SPECIAL ISSUE
This special issue is to advance theory and evidence relating business strategies and problem behaviors regarding gambling (G), alcohol drinking (D), or smoking (S). The focus of the papers is expected to relate to business and marketing strategies, government policy-makers, or consumer behavior. Problem GDS relates to compulsive consumption. Compulsive consumption is an abnormal form of spending/consuming in which the afflicted consumer has an overpowering, uncontrollable, chronic, and repetitive urge to spend and consume.
Compulsive consumption characteristically functions as a means of alleviating negative feelings of stress and anxiety. As opposed to impulsive buying, where a consumer makes an unplanned purchase (usually of a relatively inexpensive nature), compulsive consumption typically leads to severe negative consequences, particularly serious financial debt, and at the extreme point where the process of spending and consuming becomes addictive, severely disrupts the consumer’s daily life.
In the academic community, researchers discuss compulsive consumption-related typologies and etiology from biological, psychological or sociological perspectives. A review of literature directs attention to the role of marketing in compulsive consumption. Hence, JBR is issuing a call for papers, with the goal of advancing theory and knowledge on linking marketing, management, and GDS related compulsive consumption behaviors.
TOPICS Submissions should be empirical in nature, approached from marketing and business management perspectives. A variety of empirical approaches are acceptable (e.g., ethnographic, survey, experimental or archival research). Suggested topics for compulsive consumption behaviors include, but are not limited to:
- Environmental and situational factors that may drive DGS compulsive consumption
- General marketing strategies
- The role of marketing mix
- The role of promotion mix
- The role of customer – contact employees
- Integrated marketing communications
- Consumer decision making process
- Social marketing
- Meta-analysis relating to GDS compulsive consumption
- Demographic typology
- Psychological and behavioral typologies
