Abstract: This paper studies 20 global brands and attempts to understand how four brand constructs (Country of Origin (COO), familiarity, liking and trust) might influence the purchase intent of consumers living under different economic conditions. Study respondents were a random selection of adult consumers living in an emerging market economy, Hungary, and in an advanced market economy, the USA. Stepwise multiple regressions found significant differences between global brand purchase intent between these two consumer groups. The major study findings are the importance of global brand trust and liking as predictors of global brand purchase intent in Hungarian consumers and the unimportance of knowing a brand's COO in both Hungarian and US consumers.
