How does scarcity guide our attention?

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.
