Redundant Information As a Choice Architecture Tool: How Attribute Decomposition on Displays Can Be Used to Highlight Important Dimensions For Consumers

Applying this principle in environmental decisions we show how redundant information can be utilized as a choice architecture tool to increase preference for more fuel-efficient cars.
