Nonparametric tests of collectively rational consumption behavior: an integer programming procedure

No 2008-001, Working Papers ECARES from ULB -- Universite Libre de Bruxelles

Abstract: We present an IP-based nonparametric (revealed preference) testing procedure for rational consumption behavior in terms of general collective models, which include consumption externalities and public consumption. An empirical application to data drawn from the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey (RLMS) demonstrates the practical usefulness of the procedure. Finally, we present extensions of the testing procedure to evaluate the goodness-of- t of the collective model subject to testing, and to quantify and improve the power of the corresponding collective rationality tests.
