ynamic inconsistency and self-control : a planner – doer interpretation

  title={ynamic inconsistency and self-control : a planner – doer interpretation},
  author={Roland B{\'e}nabou and Marek Pycia},
We show that Gul and Pesendorfer’s [Econometrica 69 (2001) 1403] representation result for preferences with temptation and self-control can be reexpressed in terms of a costly intrapersonal conflict between a Planner and Doer, as in Thaler and Shefrin [J. Political Econ. 89 (1981) 392] and psychologists’ standard view of self-control problems.  2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
