报告人:迟健心

报告时间:2017年6月29日09:00—11:00

报告地点:科技园203

Abstract:In contrast to the common belief that uncertainty decreases investment, we show that uncertainty in the timing of future reward actually increases R&D investment.This surprising result arises from the convexity of the time discount function, which we show theoretically through an illustrative model.To measure reward-timing uncertainty empirically, we use a special structure of languagesfuture-time reference (FTR)which refers to when and how languages mark the timing of future events. We find at the country, firm, and CEO level that weak-FTR language speakers perceive higher reward-timing uncertainty and pursue more R&D investment. The results are robust to various model specifications and endogeneity checks.
