Example text

This chapter argues that part of the explanation rests on the fact that choices must often be made over time (Loewenstein and Elser, 1992). In many cases, both for individual and collective actors, a decision is taken at time t and must then be implemented or confirmed at time tϩ1. At this moment, the temptation to change the previous decision may arise. While often this time inconsistency is innocuous, sometimes it can have serious consequences. This is why people and groups alike may decide to bind themselves, like Ulysses facing the Sirens (Elster, 1979, 1992; Sally, 2000).

In the sub-game where G is time-inconsistent, in contrast, C anticipates G’s weakness in the last move, which leads G to give the additional subsidy. A thus chooses an ambitious business plan. Since G, in the first move, still prefers III over I, it makes the commitment. The equilibrium here is then III: G makes a commitment not to give another subsidy, but C anticipates that G will be tempted to renege in the last move, chooses the risky strategy, and at the end G pays for the damage. The equilibria in the two subgames are thus very different.

Loans were one example. The Stuarts secured their loans under threat, and often did not repay them. This was a behavior dictated by a heavy discounting of future, as the Crown clearly had an interest in being able to raise funds over the long run. A second form of violation of property rights was the sale of monopoly rights, which expropriated the value of existing investments, thus discouraging further investments, as well as penalizing other economic actors, including consumers. The institutional changes introduced by the Glorious Revolution, notably the attribution of more power to the Parliament and a significant limitation of the discretion of the Crown, led to considerable improvements.
