The effect of optimism bias on time preference
This paper examines the effect of optimism bias on monetary time preference and risk tolerance. The results of a survey show that preference towards the present increases with optimism bias. I argue that the factor which affects time preference is the individualâ€™s concern regarding future events, as measured by optimism bias.
