*Harvard University and National Bureau of Economic Research. I thank Jeffrey Brown for comments, Andrea Lowe for research assistance, and Harvard University’s John M. Olin Center for Law, Economics, and Business for financial support. More formal analysis of much of part II’s treatment of myopia appears in Kaplow (2006, 2015) and of part III’s examination of targeted savings in Kaplow (2011). Those analyses and the current essay grew out of my work on the chapters addressing capital taxation and social security in Kaplow (2008), which also addresses additional subjects, some related to those examined here. Disclaimer: I occasionally consult on antitrust cases, and my spouse is in the legal department of a financial services firm.
