Welfare Economics with Intransitive Revealed Preferences
 Journal of Public Economic Theory
, 2007
"... Economists use the standard rational model to predict behaviour under a new policy regime and to evaluate the policy according to its impact on the welfare of the people a¤ected. Experimental observation of behaviour casts serious doubt on the predictive accuracy of the standard model, but the more ..."

CAT’S DILEMMA – TRANSITIVITY VS. INTRANSITIVITY
, 2005
"... We study a simple example of a sequential game illustrating problems connected with making rational decisions that are universal for social sciences. The set of chooser’s optimal decisions that manifest his preferences in case of a constant strategy of the adversary (the offering player), is investi ..."

), is investigated. It turns out that the order imposed by the player’s rational preferences can be intransitive. The presented quantitative results imply a revision of the ”common sense ” opinions stating that preferences showing intransitivity are paradoxical and undesired.
Repugnance or Intransitivity: A Repugnant But Forced Choice
"... A set of arguments shows that either the Repugnant Conclusion and its variants are true or the betterthan relation isn’t transitive. Which is it? This is the most important question in population ethics. The answer will point the way to Parfit’s elusive Theory X. 1. Parfit and Sidgwick In many ways ..."

Sidgwick’s biggest problem: Sidgwick embraces Utilitarianism and Egoism yet cannot resolve the “fundamental contradiction ” between them; Parfit interprets Egoism as a theory of rationality and claims to refute it. i Parfit’s book stands a better chance of being widely read in the 23rd century. Even now
Quantum Cat’s Dilemma: an example of intransitivity in a quantum game
 Phys.Lett.A
"... We study a quantum version of the sequential game illustrating problems connected with making rational decisions. We compare the results that the two models (quantum and classical) yield. In the quantum model intransitivity gains importance significantly. We argue that the quantum model describes ou ..."

When I cut, you choose method implies intransitivity
 Physica A
"... There is a common belief that humans and many animals follow transitive inference (choosing A over C on the basis of knowing that A is better than B and B is better than C). Transitivity seems to be the essence of rational choice. We present a theoretical model of a repeated game in which the player ..."

in order to achieve the optimal result (for him/her and his/her coplayer). The point is that an intransitive choice can be rational. Previously, an increase in the significance of intransitive strategies was achieved by referring to models of quantum games. We show that relevant intransitive strategies
Additive Utility with Intransitive Indifference and without Independence: A Homogeneous Case
, 2002
"... In the homogeneous case of one type of goods or objects, we prove the existence of an additive utility function without assuming transitivity of indifference and independence. The representation reveals a positive factor ® · 1 that influences rational choice beyond the utility function and explains ..."

Public Opinion, Rational Choice and the New Institutionalism: Rational Choice as a Critical
"... Studies on the nature of public opinion and its impact on public policy, while borrowing from Rational Choice’s methodological individualism and rational actor assumptions, often fail to take into account the wider implications of rational choice theorizing for the OpinionPolicy Nexus. In this pape ..."

. In this paper we use Rational Choice Theory to criticize the mass society approach to Public Opinion and Policy. Particularly important, but often overlooked by Public Opinion scholars, are Public Choice findings on rational ignorance, the spatial theory of preferences, Intransitivity, Heresthetics

On contextually embedded choices
, 2004
"... Starting from Amartya Sen’s works on rational behaviour, in this essay a contextuallyembedded choice theory is presented. Using concepts and tools from poset mathematics, we show how to inject in rational choice theory cultural and social effects. Specifically, we define some choice superstructur ..."
