dc.description.abstractWe propose a novel approach to modelling time preferences, based on a cognitiveshortcoming of human decision makers: the perception of future events becomesincreasingly ?blurred? as the events are pushed further in time. We axiomatise a class ofpreference representations which can be specialised to rationalise ?anomalies? such aspreference reversals and cyclical preferences. We also present an application to a form oftime inconsistency which we dub ?the now or never fallacy?.en_US
