Time Horizons, Lattice Structures, and Welfare in Multi-period Matching Markets. Maciej H. Kotowski, November 11, 2014, Paper. "We examine a T-period, bilateral matching economy without monetary transfers. Under natural restrictions on agents’ preferences, which accommodate switching costs, status-quo bias, and other forms of inter-temporal complementarity, dynamically-stable matchings exist. We study the consequences of manipulating the market’s time horizon on the set of stable outcomes and we investigate this set’s lattice structure. Generally, “optimal” dynamically-stable matchings may not exist, but..." Link
