Smoking today and stopping tomorrow: a limited foresight perspective

Abstract : This article considers an intertemporal decision problem in which the agent has limited foresight. It offers an interpretation of why people may smoke when they are young--as a result of having a short horizon of foresight--and refrain from smoking when they get older--as a result of having better foresight.
