Children's Use of the Discounting Principle: A Perceptual Approach.
Kassin, Saul M.; And Others
Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, v39 n4 p719-28 Oct 1980

Initially, only college students understood the discounting principle. Kindergarten children, second graders, and fourth graders did not. Revision of the film produced considerably different results.
