Auf der foundation mikroökonomischer und verhaltenswissenschaftlicher Konzepte entwickelt Martin Wricke ein Erklärungsmodell, mit dessen Hilfe zentrale Determinanten der Preistoleranz von Nachfragern identifiziert und ihre Wirkungsweise analysiert werden. Im Rahmen einer empirischen Untersuchung in der Airline-Industrie erfolgt eine Überprüfung der gewonnenen Erkenntnisse.
