Utility Representations of Risk Neutral Preferences in Multiple Dimensions
Jon Eguia ()
Quarterly Journal of Political Science, 2009, vol. 4, issue 4, 379-385
I show that in a multidimensional spatial model, if an agent is risk neutral on each side of the policy space away from his/her ideal point, then his/her utility function is linearly decreasing not in the Euclidean, but rather in the city block distance to the ideal policy of the agent.
