Financial Constraint Decreases Consumers’ Variety Seeking Behavior

This study examines the effect of financial constraints on consumer’ variety-seeking behavior. Using different measures of variety-seeking choice, we conducted three experiments to demonstrate that financial constraints increase consumers’ insecurity which in turn decreases their variety seeking behavior. The moderating role of materialism in this effect was also examined.
