BCA has generally accepted the use of a present-value criterion for temporal aggregation. Two aspects of this simplication should be identified.

Future generations' preferences for a clean environment, flood protection, or energy security are assumed to be the same as today's. Of course, as a practical matter, many (and certainly most ofthe early) BCAs involve time horizons that do not extend beyond one generation. Thus, this issue concerns whether we assume an individual's preferences change over his lifetime.
