''Welfare criteria for quasi-hyperbolic time preferences''
( 2015, Vol. 35 No.4 )
The most prevalent welfare criteria for quasi-hyperbolic discounting models are the Pareto criterion that takes into account all periods' intertemporal utilities and the long-run perspective criterion that considers the intertemporal utility in fictitious period 0. This paper shows that efficiency by the Pareto criterion implies efficiency by the long-run criterion.
Keywords: Quasi-hyperbolic discouting, Long-run perspective criterion, Pareto criterion
