The Magnitude Effect in Subjective Discounting
Languages of publication
According to discounted utility theory, which is considered normative theory of intertemporal choice, every amount of money or other asset discounted in the same circumstances should be discounted with the same discount rate. A lot of scientists claim that in reality subjective discount rates are not constant in constant circumstances. Magnitude effect, quite often described, may cause that bigger amounts are discounted less steeply than smaller ones. In this article results of previous research are described and compared to the results obtained by the author.
