Abstract

This paper investigates the time preferences of entrepreneurs using U.S. cross section data from the 2001 Survey of Consumer Finances. The findings indicate that there is a statistically significant relationship between the rate of time preference of entrepreneurs and their age, years of education, and their degree of risk aversion. No statistically significant relationship was found between the rate of time preference of entrepreneurs and their networth and being female.
