Spending Gained Time

Given growing time famine, we study how consumers utilize unexpected time gains. Paradoxically, we find in seven studies that while consumers desire time to engage in leisure, upon gaining time they show more interest in work-oriented activities. This is because desired “free” time is psychologically distinct from the “gained” time.
