Abstract


This study examines the impact of culture on consumer behavior in two Caribbean countries namely Trinidad &
Tobago, and Jamaica. A set of hypotheses are developed to understand the impact of culture on consumer
behavior. Data is collected by surveying consumers from both countries. The findings of the research suggest
there is a relationship between family structure, language (local dialect), values and beliefs on consumer
behavior in both Trinidad & Tobago and Jamaica.
