To Catch a Thief: A Pedagogical Study of Retail Shoplifting.
Asquith, Jo Ann L.; Bristow, Dennis N.
Journal of Education for Business, v75 n5 p271-76 May-Jun 2000
Marketing students (n=141) completed a pretest describing retail customers most likely to shoplift and viewed videotaped scenarios in which security personnel suspected shoplifting based on ethnic characteristics. A significant gap was apparent between participants' predispositions and actual shoplifting statistics. The videos raised awareness of misinformation and ethnic bias. (SK)
