Winning the Lottery! – A Tricky Problem
It depends…
If interest rate = 0%
• No opportunity cost
• Option A = $1 million < Option B = $1.3 million
• Choose option B: $1000 per week for 25 years
If interest rate = 4%
• Opportunity to invest winning into a bank account that grows at the
interest rate
• Option A: AV = $1million(1.04)25 = $2.67 million
• Option B: AV = $1000(1+ .04
)1300 + $1000(1+ .04
)1299 … + 1000(1+ .04
