dc.description.tableofcontentsWe ran a field experiment in which a 20-year-old chooses be-tween a socially visible and a non-socially visible good after a friend randomly received one of these goods or an unknown good. We find no differences in choices when the friend received the nonvisible good instead of the unknown one. However, decision-makers significantly changed their choices when their friend received the visible good. Consistent with choices driven by status concerns, those in a disadvantaged position consumed more and those in an advantaged position consumed less of the visible good. These findings constitute the first experimental evidence of Dusenberry’s demonstration effects.es_ES
