Title: Brian Hedden (Sydney)
Title: Individual Time Bias and Social Discounting


Consider two questions about appropriate attitudes to time: Within a single  
life, is it permissible to weight the well-being of one's near future  
selves more heavily than one's farther future selves? And as a society, is  
it permissible to weight the well-being of near-future people more heavily  
than farther future people? While many economics and philosophers have  
suggested that these two questions are independent, so that our answer to  
one does not tightly constraint our answer to the other, I argue that they  
should be treated in parallel, so that individual time-bias is permissible  
if and only if social discounting is permissible.
