13M Materialistic Enough to Matter: the Effect of Materialism on the Reception of Innovative Products

We demonstrate that while low-materialistic consumers are more likely to purchase incremental, rather than radical, innovations, high-materialistic consumers are equally receptive to both types of innovation.
