H12. Does Economic Development Influence Consumer Innovativeness?

This research explores the relationship between income, frugality and consumer innovativeness. Results show that income positively affects innate innovativeness, but only for the higher income countries, while an indirect effect through frugality is found in lower income countries. Frugality has no direct effect on intention of innovative behavior.
