    Manzini, Paola; Mariotti, Marco (2012-01) - Journal article
    In Tversky’s (1969) model of a lexicographic semiorder, a preference is generated via the sequential application of numerical criteria by declaring an alternative x better than an alternative y if the first criterion that ...
  • Inferring cognitive heterogeneity from aggregate choices 

    Dardanoni, Valentino; Manzini, Paola; Mariotti, Marco; Tyson, Christopher J. (University of St Andrews, 2017-04-03) - Working or discussion paper
    We study the problem of recovering the distribution of cognitive characteristics in a popula-tion of boundedly rational agents from the aggregate choices they make from a fixed menu of alternatives. Two models of limited ...

    Standard choice theory assumes that the budget set is known to the decision-maker in advance. In contrast, we develop a model in which alternatives are examined sequentially and decision-makers exhibit `satisficing' ...

    We study two-stage choice procedures in which the decision maker first preselects the alternatives whose values according to a criterion pass a menu-dependent threshold, and then maximizes a second criterion to narrow the ...
