The Economics of Self-Destructive Choices

English | 2 Mar. 2016 | ISBN: 443155792X | 204 Pages | PDF | 5.95 MB

Based on recent advances in economics, especially those in behavioral economics, this book elucidates theoretically and empirically the mechanism of time-inconsistent decision making that leads to various forms of self-destructive behavior. The topics include over-eating and obesity, over-spending, over-borrowing, under-saving, procrastination, smoking, gambling, over-drinking, and other intemperate behaviors, all of which relate to serious social problems in advanced countries. In this book, the author attempts to construct a bridge between the basic theory of time discounting, especially as of hyperbolic discounting, and empirically observed "irrational (non-classical)" behavior in the various contexts just mentioned.
