Abstract: In a major contributions to behavioral economics, Loewenstein and Prelec (1992) set the foundations for the behavioral approach to decision making over time and derive the generalized hyperbolic discounting formula. Here we show that their assumption ‘common difference effect with quadratic delay’ cannot be weakened to ‘common difference effect’
