Controlling the Uncontrollable: Consumer Voluntary Risk-Taking Amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic
This qualitative diary study conceptualizes consumers’ voluntary pursuits of consumption activities despite risk of infection with Covid-19 as edgework (Lyng 1990). Findings reveal how voluntary risk-takers come to the belief of being able to control risk by constructing an illusion of control through strategies of contrasting, rationalizing, obscuring, and burying.
