Journal articles

Journal article | American Economic Journal: Microeconomics
Sharp nonparametric bounds are derived for counterfactual demands and Hicksian compensating and equivalent variations.
Journal article | Annual Review of Economics
This article aims to provide an introduction to empirical revealed preference (RP) and an overview of the current state of the field.

Working papers

IFS Working Paper W15/16
In this paper the authors show that theory-consistent demand analysis remains feasible in the presence of partially observed prices, and hence partially observed implied budget sets, even if we are agnostic about the nature of the missing prices.
IFS Working Paper W15/11
The authors develop a systematic approach for incorporating taste variation into a revealed preference framework for heterogeneous consumers.

IFS Working Paper W14/17
We investigate necessary and sufficient nonparametric conditions for the quasi-hyperbolic consumer.
Journal article | Journal of Mathematical Economics
This paper presents a nonparametric analysis of a common class of intertemporal models of consumer choice that relax consumption independence.
IFS Working Paper W13/19
This paper presents a nonparametric analysis of a common class of intertemporal models of consumer choice that relax consumption independence.
Journal article | Economic Journal
We consider a revealed preference-based method that will bound the minimal partition of consumer microdata into a set of preference types such that the data are perfectly rationalisable by standard utility theory.
IFS Working Paper W12/14
Sharp nonparametric bounds are derived for Hicksian compensating and equivalent variations. These 'i-bounds' generalize earlier results of Blundell, Browning and Crawford (2008). We show that their e-bounds are sharp under the Weak Axiom of Revealed Preference (WARP). They do not require ...
