An Axiomatization of the Leontief Preferences

  • Uuganbaatar Ninjbat

    ()

    (Department of Economics, Stockholm School of Economics)

Registered author(s):

    An axiomatic characterization of the well known Leontief preferences is given. The key axiom is upper consistency, which states that for any two bundles, another bundle is weakly preferred to at least one of them if and only if it is weakly preferred to the bundle that contains the least amount of each commodity in them.
