Owning Or Sharing? How Feeling Financially Constrained Decreases Participation in Access-Based Services

Feeling financially constrained influences consumer attention, and behaviors. We propose that this feeling also affects the propensity to engage in alternative consumption modes; namely, access-based consumption. Two experiments test whether financially constrained consumers are less willing to participate in access-based services. The preliminary findings seem to not support our hypothesis.
