Modelling Everyday Consumer Behavior: the Case of Restricted Consumption

This study seeks to understand consumer recognition, reaction, and behavioral intensions stemming from states of restricted consumption. Findings illustrate more positive consumer emotion states through self-imposed, permanent restriction situations.
