2 Measurement of Time Discounting Parameters We use a general model proposed by Benhabib et al. (2007) which allows us to test exponential, hyperbolic, quasi-hyperbolic discounting, and a more general form. The model assigns a value to reward y at time of y“(1 (1 ™)rt)1/(1 ™) for t > 0 (or simply y for immediate reward at t D 0). The three factors r, “ and ™ separate conventional time discounting (r), presentbias (“) and hyperbolicity (™) of the discount function. When “ D 1, as ™ approaches 1 the discounted value reduces to exponential discounting (e rt ) in the limit.
