Abstract

This paper uses the theory called Difference Assessment Account to hypothesizeon Euro introduction effects on Lithuanian and Latvian consumers’ behavior. Difference Assessment Account itself describes how consumers perceive value of transactions whennominal value of currency is varied, and how this perception affects their economicdecisions. The paper explains Difference Assessment Account and tests this theory withan experiment, which’s participants are Lithuanian and Latvian consumers. The results of the experiment serve as a basis for the discussion of the assumptions on Euro introductioneffects on Lithuanian and Latvian consumers.
