報告簡介:

Recent breakthroughs in biotechnology have expanded the range of genetic engineering applications in animal agriculture. Acceptance of food products from bio-engineered animals is expected to be controversial and requires a thorough understanding of consumer preferences and drivers of acceptance. I will discuss a novel framework based on Bayesian updating that allows us to predict which consumers are most responsive to information and will discuss how psychometrics can be used to explain consumer preferences. This talk will draw on data from consumer acceptance of a genetically modified pork product in the US (N=945), and China (N=945).  Findings will be discussed in the context of recent breakthroughs in biotechnology.

生物技術領域的最新突破擴大了基因工程在動物農業中的應用范圍。接受生物工程動物的食品預計會引起爭議,我們需要徹底了解消費者偏好和接受的驅動因素。我將討論一個基于貝葉斯更新的新框架,該框架能夠讓我們預測消費者對哪些信息最敏感,并將討論如何使用心理測量來解釋消費者偏好。這次交流將借鑒美國(N=945)和中國(N=945)消費者接受轉基因豬肉產品的數據。研究結果將在生物技術最新突破的背景下討論。
