Regulation of “Socially-(Un)Regulated” Spending
This study investigates the conceptual links from self-control to spending, financial hardship and well-being of university students. Findings indicate that (1) self-regulation predicts consumption only when spending context is free of social influences; but (2) in social context, normative expectations and identity play more important roles in consumption decision.
