Abstract

The dissertation applies experimental methods to study a few questions in economics. Chapter 2 studies how the intertemporal allocation of monetary rewards is influenced by the size of the total budget, with a particular interest in the channels of influence. Chapter 3 introduces a new method of measuring intertemporal preferences, and then applies the method to investigate how people choose between combinations of monetary incomes on different dates. Chapter 4 examines whether the behavior of making a choice between two options has a direct effect on subsequent belief about the attractiveness of the two options.
