Past events

Past event
How should the design of incentives vary with the time preferences of agents? We formulate predictions for two incentive contract variations that should increase efficacy for impatient agents relative to patient ones: increasing the frequency of incentive payments, and making the contract “dynamically non-separable” by only rewarding compliance in a given period if the agent complies in a minimum number of other periods.
Past event
We characterize the distribution of permanent-income and quantify the value of assets and human capital in lifetime wealth portfolios.
