Abstract

The paper presents analysis of a telephone survey that examines how people formulate their preferences when gains may be obtained for waiting to consume a good. The study uses "goods" that are either jobs-in-the-community (social good) or personal windfall gain. The time tradeoffs involve a 10 percent annual increase for five years with delayed receipt of the good.
