Hindsight Value: Failed Transactions Inform Willingness to Pay
We find that transaction failures inform consumers’ valuation of goods. Buyers recognize the surplus utility of goods in hindsight: initial failure to acquire a good increases their subsequent WTP for it. Further, as failure to sell decreases owners’ WTA, hindsight valuation bridges the WTP-WTA gap and allows for successful exchanges.
