The Age of Materialism: Age, Period, & Cohort Effects Across the Life Cycle
This study examines materialism across the life cycle. It disentangles age (16-90 years), period (economic downturn) and cohort effects using data of over 4700 consumers across eight waves. It finds that younger and older people are more materialistic, which is partly due to younger birth cohorts being more materialistic.
