Addiction, procrastination, and failure points in decision-making systems

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (4):439-440 (2008)
Abstract
Redish et al. suggest that their failures-in-decision-making framework for understanding addiction can also contribute to improving our understanding of a variety of psychiatric disorders. In the spirit of reflecting on the significance and scope of their research, I briefly develop the idea that their framework can also contribute to improving our understanding of the pervasive problem of procrastination
