Prudent choices and rationality

  • Nicolas Houy

    (Department of Economics, Ecole Polytechnique - CNRS : UMR7176 - Polytechnique - X)

Registered author(s):

    In this paper, we study the relationships between binary lexicographic composition of rationales (see [Tadenuma, 2002]), prudent choices (see [Houy, 2008a]) and refined prudent choices (see [Houy, 2008b]) in the case of multi-criteria decision making. We show that these relationships are linked to the non-emptiness and rationality properties of these choice functions.
