This is a pretty broad topic so I think that you will find a lot of results in the literature and then will need to narrow your results by narrowing your topic. For example, you may decide to narrow the topic to healthcare and consumerism and the United States. For now though, you should begin by going into the business libguide at libguides.brenau.edu/business. Once you are in the libguide, choose the articles tab and you will find a list of databases that are useful for researching business topics. I chose ABI/Inform Complete by ProQuest - the second database on the list. I limited my results by checking the full text and scholarly boxes underneath the search bar. Then, I used the search terms Consumerism AND United States OR America. Don't forget to add the words AND and OR to your search. I found many relevant articles. Also, don't forget that you can run these same search terms through other databases such as Business Source Complete and Academic Search Complete for other results.
