Happiness, time, risks

Luc Arrondel, Fabrice Etilé and André Masson study the question of the subjective identity of economic agents and their relationship to time. Starting with the essential question of the conditions of existence of economic actors and their temporal persistence , they treat questions as diverse as the psychological basis of time preferences, the importance of alterity in decision making, psychological resilience to life events, and the stability of preferences as revealed by financial investment choices.
