Do all constructive strongly monotone inter-temporal orders exhibit impatience?

Journal of Mathematical Economics, 2014, vol. 52, issue C, 66-69

Abstract: In this paper we show that if a strongly monotone inter-temporal order exhibits no preference towards the advancement of timing of future utility on any infinite utility stream, then the existence of such an order must involve some non-constructive device.
