Testing Explanations of Preference Reversal: a Model

Yves Alarie and Georges Dionne

Cahiers de recherche from CIRPEE

Abstract: When Cubitt, Munro and Starmer (2004) presented their new experimental investigation of preference reversal, they pointed out that their test results cannot be explained by any of the best-known explanations proposed by economists and psychologists. In this paper we propose a model based on lotteries qualities to explain these new test results.
