Discounting by intervals: An inconsistent theory of intertemporal choice?

Ali al-Nowaihi () and Sanjit Dhami

No 08/10, Discussion Papers in Economics from Division of Economics, School of Business, University of Leicester

Abstract: We show that the theory developed in Scholten and Read (2006) “Discounting by Intervals: A Generalized Model of Intertemporal Choice”, Management Science, 52, 1424-1436, is an inconsistent theory. We suggest a way the inconsistency can be removed.
