Drivers of consumption decisions
Rising per-capita consumption is a major driver of environmental degradation. This study analysed the data from the India Human Development Survey to identify socio-cultural correlations of conspicuous consumption behaviour in India, after controlling for income. The multivariate analysis suggested that exposure to mass media and social networking are positive drivers of consumption whereas education seems to mitigate their effects.
