17-O: Unaffordable Option and Sensitivity to Social Inequality

This research investigates the effect of adding an unaffordable option to a choice set on sensitivity to social inequality. Two experiments demonstrate that adding an unaffordable option to a choice set fosters concern for social inequality and diminishes support for group based dominance, especially for individuals high in political conservatism.
