More expensive products are perceived to be better due to the Price placebo effect


Description

InĀ an experiment, MIT researchers gave people two different “pain medications” priced at 10 cents and $2.50 prior to administering minor shocks. The people who chose the more expensive medication reported feeling less pain and were more happy with the medicine. This effect has been observed in virtually every industry.
