A Comment on "The Selection of Preferences Through Imitation"
We observe that the imitation dynamics of Cubitt and Sugden (CS) is the same as the Replicator Dynamics for a certain class of games. Known results for such games then permit a more complete analysis of the CS imitaion process, containing their results as special cases, and extending them considerably. We also offer a comment on the special role of "pure" prospects, and an as if interpretation of the CS process in terms of payoff-guided imitation.
