N1. the Experiential Advantage in Eudaimonic Well-Being – an Experimental Assessment

Despite the documented hedonic superiority of experiential purchases to material purchases, a focus on their relative well-being implications remains unexplored. Given that the very idea of well-being is changing, the authors report results from two experimental studies that evaluate the experiential advantage in terms of a new framework – eudaimonic well-being.
