    In the experiment where they offered $50 now or $100 a year from now. I wonder if the results would have been different if they had two checks one dated today for $50 and one post dated for one year from now for $100 and let people choose which check to take. The experiment as it is described asks people to evaluate their trust in the researchers. But the experiment I described gives the participant more responsibility, do they think they can hang on to a check for a year?
