  • A Case of Framing Effects: The Elicitation of Time Preferences. 

    Manzini, Paola; Mariotti, Marco (University of St Andrews, 2014)
    We compare three methods for the elicitation of time preferences in an experimental setting: the Becker-DeGroot-Marschak procedure (BDM); the second price auction; and the multiple price list format. The first two methods ...
  • Competing for Attention: Is the Showiest also the Best? 

    Manzini, Paola; Mariotti, Marco (University of St Andrews, 2014)
    We introduce attention games. Alternatives ranked by quality (producers, politicians, sexual partners...) desire to be chosen and compete for the imperfect attention of a chooser by investing in their own salience. We ...
  • Imperfect Attention and Menu Evaluation 

    Manzini, Paola; Mariotti, Marco (University of St Andrews, 2013)
    We model the choice behaviour of an agent who suffers from imperfect attention. We define inattention axiomatically through preference over menus and endowed alternatives: an agent is inattentive if it is better to be ...
  • Moody choice 

    Manzini, Paola; Mariotti, Marco (University of St Andrews, 2010)
    If choices depend on the decision maker's mood, is the attempt to derive any consistency in choice doomed? In this paper we argue that, even with full unpredictability of mood, the way choices from a menu relate to choices ...
  • Partial Knowledge Restrictions on theTwo-Stage Threshold Model of Choice 

    Manzini, Paola; Mariotti, Marco; Tyson, Christopher J (University of St Andrews, 2015-02-10)
    In the context of the two-stage threshold model of decision making, with the agent’s choices determined by the interaction Of three “structural variables,” we study the restrictions on behavior that arise when one or more ...
  • A Salience Theory of Choice Errors 

    Manzini, Paola; Mariotti, Marco (University of St Andrews, 2010)
    We study a psychologically based foundation for choice errors. The decision maker applies a preference ranking after forming a 'consideration set' prior to choosing an alternative. Membership of the consideration set is ...
  • Stochastic Choice and Consideration Sets 

    Manzini, Paola; Mariotti, Marco (University of St Andrews, 2013)
    We model a boundedly rational agent who suffers from limited attention. The agent considers each feasible alternative with a given (unobservable) probability, the attention parameter, and then chooses the alternative ...
  • Stochastic Complementarity 

    Manzini, Paola; Mariotti, Marco; Ulku, Levent (University of St Andrews, 2015-03)
    Classical definitions of complementarity are based on cross price elasticities, and so they do not apply, for example, when goods are free. This context includes many relevant cases such as online newspapers and public ...
