Defer... then what?

This survey discusses four decision theoretic models on choice deferral. The common trail is that uncertainty over one's future preferences leads to delay in making decisions. The survey discusses the success of the existing models in accounting for this phenomenon and the usefulness of these for exploring the consequences of choice deferral in other settings.
