Shake Hard Play Hard: the Impact of Risk on Consumer Behavior in the Aftermath of Disaster

We use geophysical and individual-level mobile application and mobile telecommunication data of 157,358 victims of the 2013 Ya’an earthquake (Ms 7.0) to diagnose the effects of experiencing real risk on consumer behavior. We show that hedonic activities have an important role in promoting psychological recovery and ameliorating negative psychological state.
