How Experiences of Freedom Foster Consumer Happiness? a Distinction Between “Freedom To” and “Freedom From” Experiences of Consumption
This research explores two types of experiences of freedom in consumption: “Freedom from” constraints (FF) and “Freedom to” be oneself (FT). A qualitative study, a semantic analysis and an experiment investigate respectively the representations, the differences and the influence of FF and FT on consumer happiness.
