Sur la définition du choix rationnel dans le cas de préférences dépendant du contexte


  • Marc-Arthur Diaye


We deal here with the issue of menu-dependent choice set in Sen [1971,1993, 1994,1997]. However, we use a different approach to Baigent and Gaertner [1996], Gaertner and Xu [1997,1999 a, b, c]. Indeed, we assume that choice is menudependent because preferences are menu-dependent. Classification JEL : D10, D80, B41
