How Do Natural Disasters Affect Consumers’ Desire For Luxuries?
Using search engine query data (real behavioral data from Google), we investigate the effect of natural disasters on consumers’ desire for luxuries. The results indicate that the conspicuousness of luxuries moderates the effect: natural disasters have a negative impact on consumers’ desire for conspicuous luxuries (vs. inconspicuous luxuries / non-luxuries).
