The Relation between Behavior under Risk and over Time

American Economic Review: Insights, 2020, vol. 2, issue 1, 1-16

Abstract: The paper establishes a tight relation between nonstandard behaviors in the domains of risk and time, by considering a decision-maker with non-expected utility preferences who believes that only present consumption is certain while any future consumption is uncertain. We provide the first complete characterizations of the two-way relations between the certainty effect and present bias, and between the common ratio effect and temporal reversals.
