Consumers often report feeling that resources are lacking in their life. While many people face chronic resource-shortages (e.g., poverty), even people who live in relative abundance often feel that certain resources are insufficient to meet their needs. As a consequence, people often think about, worry about, and discuss scarcity-related concerns.

What are the consequences of experiencing resource scarcity on consumer decision-making? How do consumers cope with their feelings of “not having enough”?
