Here are some thoughts on presumption of self-control theories. They are based on the presumption that we have bounded willpower and that there needs to be a course of action to which keeps in the individual on track to meeting goals and expectations. Thus they derive incentive and constraints as solutions. Constrains, or rules, are meant to restrict the individual’s opportunities.

Do you have any thoughts on self-control theories and relation to behavioral or other forms of economics/choice making?
