Abstract

We examine in this paper the effect of an early resolution of uncertainty on savings. We show that this effect is in general ambiguous. We provide necessary and sufficient conditions on the utility function which guarantee that an early resolution of uncertainty reduces current savings for various decision problem under uncertainty.
