Although several studies have examined how individuals discount various consumable outcomes, researchers have yet to compare various conditioned reinforcers (i.e. exchangeable for a variety of goods). The present study controls for the reinforcer type (using all conditioned reinforcers) in order to gain a greater understanding of rates of discounting of various outcomes (money, clothes, and food). The current study also extends previous research to include a non?consumable but non-conditioned outcome (clothes).
