Choice theory when agents can randomize
Journal of Economic Theory, 2015, vol. 155, issue C, 131-151
This paper takes choice theory to risk or uncertainty. Well-known decision models are axiomatized under the premise that agents can randomize. Under a reversal of order assumption, this convexifies choice sets, and even after imposing the weak axiom of revealed preference and nonemptiness of choice correspondences, the preferences directly revealed by choice may be incomplete or cyclical.
