You Can’T Always Get What You Want: the Effect of Childhood Scarcity on Substitution Decisions
This paper examines effects of childhood socioeconomic status (SES) on substitution decisions. Results demonstrate that consumers with low (vs. high) childhood SES are more willing to wait for an initially chosen alternative but are more likely to devalue it when it becomes unavailable, making it easier to choose a substitute.
