Online dating emerged as a key platform for human mating. Previous research focused on socio-demographic characteristics to explain human mating in online dating environments, neglecting the commonly recognized relevance of sport. This research investigates the effect of sport activity on human mating by exploiting a unique data set from an online dating platform. Thereby, we leverage recent advances in the causal machine learning literature to estimate the causal effect of sport frequency on th...

Based on a longitudinal approach, Gollnhofer and Boller trace the German anti-food waste movement. They followed the anti-food waste movement from 2012 to 2016 as it grew from a group of dumpster divers into a collective based on food sharing and resulted in a movement that motivated retailers to change some of their business routines (i.e. selling blemished fruits and vegetables). They contribute to prior literature by showing how the idea of selling ugly fruit and vegetables gained ground in t...

Virtual Reality (VR) technologies are presumed to affect the future of product customization architectures (PCAs). The objective of this research is to investigate the effect of virtual (relative to non-virtual) PCAs on consumer decision making, structure, and justification. In one laboratory experiment this research demonstrates that virtual relative to non-virtual PCAs increase consumers’ choice confidence with regard to the customized product due to two psychological mechanisms. First, this r...

Single parenthood emerged as a common family model in western societies. Congruently, the comprehension of mating behavior of (and with regard to) single parents seems to be pertinent not only because single parents typify a significant proportion in (contemporary) mating markets (online dating platforms) but also because mating behavior of (or with regard to) single parents is expected to enfold downstream consequences on both respective single parents and associated children. However, only lit...

Food retailing is a vibrant and highly competitive industry (Colla 2004). Besides consumer-driven initiatives (for instance ‘slow food’ (Sebastiani, Montagnini, and Dalli 2012; Tencati and Zsolnai 2012; Chaudhury and Albinsson 2015) or community-supported agriculture (Thompson and Coskuner-Balli 2007) technological advances challenge the food retailing industry. For instance, Amazon is about to revolutionize the retail sector with automatic checkout (‘Amazon Go’) in grocery stores, providing Ama...

In this research work we argue, that the interplay of immersion (individual state of being attached to Virtual Reality [VR]), and emersion (individual state of being detached to Physical Reality [PR]) affects the ability in transferring and applying VR experiences in PR, and consequently, the benefits of VR. Specifically, the ‘Elution-Hypothesis’ demonstrates that the level of abstraction in VR transcend the shift from VR to PR, that is revert immersion, and that the level of associations transc...

Human decision making does not exist in isolation, but is determined by consumers’ prior experiences, expressed by the notion of “context-dependent choice”. Few research has examined the effect of contextual experiences on consumer decision making, and there is a specific lack regarding how pre-shopping experiences in online ambiences affect consumer decision making. Our paper proposes a novel approach to extract information from the path, respectively, to derive a holistic understanding of path...
