The US Department of Agriculture on Tuesday released a study that examined years of data to reach the conclusion that people buy fast food because it’s faster, and they want to save time.
That conclusion was quickly summarized near the top of the 52-page study: “Americans purchase fast food to save time.”
The study was conducted by USDA’s Economic Research Service, even though it admitted that prior studies had already found that “budget and time constraints” were factors in people decision to buy fast food. Still, it said the study was the first to “extensively examine” the effects of time, budgets on people’s purchasing decisions.
