A Representation Theorem for General Revealed Preference

No 2018-28, Working Papers ECARES from ULB -- Universite Libre de Bruxelles

Abstract: We provide a representation theorem for revealed preference of an agent whose consumption set is contained in a general topological space (separable Hausdorff space). We use this result to construct a revealed preference test that applies to choice over infinite consumption streams and probability distribution spaces, among other cases of interest in economics. In particular, we construct a revealed preference test for best-responding behavior in strategic games.
