Anti-Consumption and Personal Debt

This study examines if the scores on anti-consumption lifestyles correlate with account balance and balance due. In a sample of Brazilians customers, it was found that voluntary simplicity, but not frugality and tightwadism, correlate negatively with balance due. In addition, none of the lifestyles correlates significantly with account balance.
