Abstract

When (a − 1)X = Z, the zero-price effect was observed only for (a: large, X: small) and (a: small, X: small). When X was small, the zero-price effect was observed irrespective of the value of a. When X was large, the zero-price effect was not observed. Human behavior tend to deviate from irrational behavior assumed in traditional economics for small values of X irrespective of a. The price of zero must be irrationally chosen due to the overestimation of price of zero. When (a − 1)X > Z, the zero-price effect was observed only for (a: large, X: large) and (a: large, X: small). When a was large, the zero-price effect was observed irrespective of whether X was large or small. When a was small, the zero-price effect was not observed. Human behavior tend to deviate from irrational behavior assumed in traditional economics for large values of a irrespective of the value of a. In this manner, it has been indicated that the zero-price effect is not necessarily observable and holds under limited conditions.
