Spending Gained Time

Five studies demonstrate that, despite desiring more leisure, consumers prefer to work when they actually gain time. This is because, while gaining time creates unaccounted time, consumers treat it differently than free time. To decide how to use gained time, consumers turn to their to-do’s, increasing their preference for work.
