A representative consumer theory of the logit model
The log it model is usually derived from a discrete choice approach with stoc hastic utilities. It is shown here that the logit demand system may also be derived from the maximization of a deterministic, entropy-type utility. The latter may be interpreted as the preference function of a representative consumer with variety-seeking behavior. This altern ative view suggests a generalization of the standard logit which allo ws total demand to be determined endogenously.
