The idea is to consider the hyperplane tangent at the indifference curve through $x^t$ as a "linear budget". These linear budgets have to include the set $\overline{y^t, z^t}$. Then making use of these these linear budgets, we can leverage the results of Matzkin & Richter (JET,1991, Testing strictly concave rationality) to obtain a strictly ...

Take a dataset $D = (B^t, x^t)_{t \in T}$ such that for all $t$, $x^t \in B^t$. I'll say that $D$ is rationalisable by the utility function $u$ if for all $t$ and all $x \in B$: $u(x^t) \ge u(x)$. If you only impose convexity on $u$, then any dataset $D$ is rationalisable by the constant (convex) utility function $u(x) = k$. So this has not testable ...

Exponential growth bias is bias that occurs because people intuitively do not ...

Headline Inflation: Headline inflation is the raw inflation figure reported through the Consumer Price Index (CPI) Raw means it is not adjusted in any way (like core inflation that excludes energy and food prices). Provisional headline inflation just means the numbers are not final and subject to change. Imputed Index If some prices are missing ...
