Satisficing choice procedures
MetadataShow full item record
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' attitudes. We axiomatically characterize our model and investigate behavioral definitions of satisfaction, attention, and preference under various choice domains. Moreover, we relate our framework to several well-known existing models.
