    Abstract

    The thesis consists of three studies on intertemporal decisions of Thai coastal villagers and Thai university students. The research methods are lab-in-the-field experiment, field experiment as well as lab experiment. I investigate the relationship between time preferences and conservation decisions in a Thai coastal village. I also examine how time preferences of group members and communication influence decisions on behalf of a group.
