题目Farsighted Preference, Intention-Behavior Gap and Self-regulation




Departure from the conventional wisdom, this paper shows that people treat sustainability as priority may not lead to sustainable behavior but intention-behavior gap. Axiomatic characterizations are proposed for a far-sighted preference, in which the agent does not discount distant future reward from sustainability but discount future consumption as usual. A far-sighted agent intends to let the future-selves take more responsibilities because their consumption cost is less important due to discounting. However, their behavior is automatically triggered by situational cues and thus highly routinized. Self-regulation is like an uphill road and become a Sisyphean task if the road is too long. Furthermore, the existence and disappearance of greenium is discussed as an example.
