Bone, J.D., Hey, J.D. and Suckling, J.R. (2003) Do People Plan Ahead? Applied Economics Letters, 10 (5). pp. 277-280. ISSN 1350-4851

Indeed the experiment is so simple and so straightforward that it is difficult to believe that anyone would not plan ahead. However subjects are found who do not. What are they doing?
