The Low-Cost-Hypothesis and the Support for a City Toll

New publication by Fabian Thiel


In an article published in the journal "Kölner Zeitschrift für Soziologie und Sozialpsychologie" Fabian Thiel uses survey data on the acceptance of a city toll to test the formalization of the low-cost hypothesis proposed by Tutic et al. (2017). The low-cost hypothesis postulates an decreasing effect of an attitude on behavior when costs of attitude-conforming behavior increase. The analyzes show that the low-cost hypotheses holds for the case of a city toll.
