The Journal of Consumer Policy examines the behavior of consumers and producers, and fosters communication among parties in the marketplace. It explores consumer dependence on existing social and economic structures, helps to define consumer interests, and discusses ways in which consumer welfare can be fostered - or restrained - through actions and policies of consumers, industry, organizations, government, educational institutions, and mass media.
Coverage includes the impact of new technologies; market regulation and deregulation; internationalization; consumers in less affluent societies; environmental and gender issues; public sector products and services; consumer organizations and agencies; product safety and liability; and interaction of consumption, work and leisure.
The Journal reports on legal policy, and analyzes trends in implementation of consumer law. It also considers the supply-side impact of consumer legislation and discusses consumer policy in different parts of the world.
