The Ex-Money Effect: When and Why People Feel Connected to Outcomes That Involve Money They Previously Had

We document the ex-money effect that people feel connected to outcomes that involve money they previously had (their “ex-money”), and suggest this counter-normative effect stems from people conceptualizing money as a non-fungible material good. We document its boundary condition and discuss using it as a low-friction, minimalistic nudge.
