John Piesse's curator insight, November 10, 2013 3:50 PM

There must be a social context in which individuals can internalise risks.

 

Most people, including myself, are "conditional co-operators". If my mates pay more for ethical products, I probably will, but if they don't understand or communicate the value of doing so, my guess is they probably aren't buying ethical products and I probably won't based on their influence. They more than anyone are probably the people I'm going to respond to if they believe I should be doing more, but if the context is wrong then I'm probably not going to be receptive.

 

Ian Robinson says "there is no socio-cultural benefits for an individual to buy something that isn't recogniseable as ethical". I learnt that at uni in 1st year marketing when we were told the Toyota Prius (which looked very different from anything else) sold much better than the Honda Civic Hybrid (which looked like the non-hybrid model ).

 

A more sophisticated and intuitive mechanism to recognise decisions made where we share the ethical values that were the basis of the decision -where we agree the decision was made to do the right thing- would help to reduce the widely held view that these decisions can only be communicated in the mainstream at a superficial level.
