Research on intertemporal choice: From single dated outcomes to multiple dated outcomes

Intertemporal choice refers to any decision that requires tradeoffs among outcomes that occur at different times.With an increasing consensus on the psychological process for choices between single dated outcomes,an increasing amount of research focuses on choices between multiple dated outcomes.This paper reviews theories on intertemporal choices between multiple dated outcomes,including the sequences model,reason-based theory,salience account,and tradeoff model.In doing so,this paper suggests directions for future research on intertemporal choices between multiple dated outcomes,including a comparison and reconciliation of different theories,an examination of loss outcomes,and an application of eye-tracking techniques.

Key words:intertemporal choice,single dated outcome,multiple dated outcomes
