Liquid Consumption: How Can We Use It in Consumer Research?

We introduce the concept of liquid consumption, and discuss how it differs from ‘solid’ consumption as well as postmodern consumption. We focus on how liquid consumption can reinvigorate research agendas for a wide variety of consumer behavior constructs such as consumer attachment, brand communities, materialism, and digital consumption.
