Toward a Theory on the Content and Structure of Money Attitudes

Steven Michael Burgess, Graduate School of Business, University of Cape Town, South Africa
Rising consumer debt, compulsive buying, credit card abuse, and bankruptcy have focused attention on money attitudes, which are beliefs people hold about money and exchange situations. Building on earlier work by Yamauchi and Templer (1982), we propose a new theory on the contents and structure of money attitudes, develop a new measurement scale and rigorously test its psychometric properties.
