Though the concept of the scarcity mindset assumes that the behavioral effects of scarcity are driven by attentional biases, little research has aimed to confirm this hypothesis. In an eye-tracking study, we set out to test inattention as one potential mechanism behind scarcity-induced neglect of information. Our findings can have important policy implications, suggesting to more carefully take attentional processes into account by making information about relevant services easier to process.
