Show Summary Details


This is the third of six chapters in Part II about demand and utility cost, a typical area for what is understood as choice theory. It discusses the combinatorics of demand. Its six sections are: general consistency (of the normal demand); cross‐costs (of demand); classical consistency (of demands); multiplier‐level solutions (to demand); utility cost; and classical limits (with reference to classical utilities belonging to multiplier‐level classes of compatible utilities).

Keywords: choice; choice theory; classical consistency; classical limits; classical utilities; compatible utilities; cross‐costs; demand; multiplier‐level solutions; normal demand; utility cost
