Regarding the welfare effect, relative to the pre-policy equilibrium, the percentage change in the discounted utility summed over time during the policy period remains negative after 35 years.
Table 5 reports the percentage changes in discounted utility summed over time with versus without the policy, while varying the three health parameters individually.
Findings from behavioral economic studies suggest that the discount rate for values in a future period is not an exponential function of delay, as the standard discounted utility model implies, but is better described as a hyperbolic function, in which the rate of discounting decreases with the passage of time (Ainslie, 1992, 2001; Chong & Herrnstein, 1967).
The hyperbolic discounted utility model has generated numerous empirical predictions that distinguish this model from the standard discounted utility model (see Goldin, 2007).
At times we will refer to the doctor's (expected) discounted utility as the doctor's payoff or value.
This is equal to the subjective expectation of the instantaneous utility given by Equation (1), plus the expected discounted utility for the next patients.
As the life-cycle process involves decisions of consumption and saving, the discounted utility model introduced by Samuelson (1937) and cited in Ho, Lim, and Camerer (2006) can be used to study intertemporal choices.
Several interesting alternatives to the discounted utility analysis have been proposed.
They show how a linear-quadratic policy problem can be derived which yields a correct linear approximation to the optimal policy rules from the point of view of the maximization of expected discounted utility in a dynamic stochastic general-equilibrium model, building on their work for the case of optimal monetary policy when lump-sum taxes are available.
After a brief review of the related literature, "Bounds on Hyperbolic Discounting" shows that violating the complete markets assumption of the discounted utility model can reconcile the empirical evidence.
Over a much shorter period of time, evidence has accumulated revealing systematic violations of the standard model of choice over time, the Discounted Utility model.
A finite-lived agent chooses a path of consumption of a harmful and addictive good to maximize present discounted utility. The consumer chooses his consumption rate to account for the future health consequence of smoking and the withdrawal costs of quitting.
