Do Consumers Expect Values to Increase Or Decrease Over Time?

We show that consumers associate quantity changes with increases—when shown one data point (e.g., this year’s profit) and asked to estimate next year’s profit, consumers expect the estimate to be higher. We report findings from six studies and contribute to the forecasting and numerical cognition literature.
