Creating Ownership Where Ownership Does Not Exist: Psychological Ownership Increases Enjoyment in Sharing Economy

We investigate psychological ownership in a context where consumers’ legal ownership does not exist: sharing economy. We find that psychological ownership of experiences is lower in the sharing economy than in legal ownership based consumption. Our interventions that enhance psychological ownership consequently lead to an increase in enjoyment of experiences.
