How multiple reference points are integrated is an open question. Strahilevitz and Loewenstein (1998) found that the valuation of objects depended not only on whether an individual was currently endowed with an object, but on the entire past history of ownership—how long the object had been owned or, if it had been lost in the past, how long ago it was lost and how long it was owned before it was lost. These “history-of-ownership effects” were sufficiently strong that choice prices of people who had owned for a long period but who had just lost an object were higher than the selling prices of people who had just acquired the same object.

The only difference is that sellers are “giving up” a mug they “own,” whereas choosers are merely giving up the right to have a mug. Any difference between the two groups cannot be attributed to wealth effects. ’s work was motivated in part by survey evidence from “contingent valuation” studies that attempt to establish the dollar value of goods that are not routinely traded.

These assumptions can be considered “procedurally rational” (Herbert Simon’s term) because they posit functional heuristics for solving problems that are often so complex that they cannot be solved exactly by even modern computer algorithms. Evaluating Behavioral Economics Stigler (1965) says economic theories should be judged by three criteria: congruence with reality, generality, and tractability. Theories in behavioral economics should be judged this way too. , by adding only one or two parameters to standard models.
