Scarcity’S Effects on Evaluation of Prices

This research develops a conceptual framework which incorporates both the motivational and the interference effects of scarcity on information processing. The results from two studies show that scarcity influences consumers’ perceptions of price information for a travel package with the pattern of results being dependent on price levels and consumers’ motivation to process information. Analyses of thought measures provided further support for the underlying processes.
