We provide novel experimental evidence for “concentration bias,” the tendency to overweight advantages that are concentrated in time. Subjects commit to too much overtime work that is dispersed over multiple days in exchange for a bonus that is concentrated in time: concentration bias increases subjects’ willingness to work by 22.4% beyond what standard discounting models could account for. In additional conditions and a complementary experiment involving monetary payments, we study the mechanisms behind concentration bias and demonstrate the robustness of our findings.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Schwerter, Frederik</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Dertwinkel-Kalt, Markus</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Strang, Louis</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2022</dcterms:issued> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Schwerter, Frederik</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Dertwinkel-Kalt, Markus</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Strang, Louis</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Concentration Bias in Intertemporal Choice</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2022-03-09T08:47:01Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Riener, Gerhard</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Gerhardt, Holger</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
