players play different strategies. Specifically, there is heterogeneity in players’ raw preferences for one action over another, and the strength of any given player’s preference is given by an individual-specific preference parameter. Conditions under which heterogeneous preferences lead to heterogeneous behavior are by: 1.   Abstract. In this paper, we study asset prices in a dynamic, continuous-time, and general-equilibrium endowment economy in which agents have “catching up with the Joneses” utility functions and differ with respect to their beliefs (because of differences in priors) and their preference parameters for time discount, risk aversion, and sensitivity to by: Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper examines consumer preferences for Internet bandwidth, focusing on technical ability and urban/rural location as sources of preference heterogeneity. An economic model is outlined that shows that ability decreases the effective price of bandwidth. As a result of this decrease, part of the total effect of an increase in ability will always be an. Heterogeneity is a fundamental aspect of preferences. It is self-evident; stepping out-side of academia and into daily life, the thought of finding two individuals who are identical in their preferences seems almost ludicrous. While accounting for preference heterogeneity may not be needed in all cases, it is often useful to equity considerations.

ABSTRACT We investigate the effect of preference heterogeneity between skilled and unskilled workers on agglomeration, and we identify a new source of dependence of equilibrium prices on the demand properties shaped by the inter‐regional distribution of workers.

We find a new preference effect, and we show that when the intensity of skilled workers' preference for the modern.

Revealed preference restrictions have been derived for general random utility models that can be applied to rationalise the behaviour of cross section distributions of demand with unobserved preference heterogeneity (see Block and Marschak (), McFadden and Richter () and McFadden ()).

Preference Heterogeneity Price, Feick and Higie () define preference het-erogeneity as the extent to which individual tastes and preferences for a good or service vary across con-sumers.

High preference heterogeneity refers to sub-stantial variation in consumer preferences (i.e., low consensus in evaluation, and many distinct clusters.

We further assume that agents face convex costs of provision, an assumption that accords well with individually provided public goods such as neighborhood. This thesis is on the economics of preference heterogeneity. It reviews the main methods used to give empirical content to differences in preferences and pushes the development of a particular method, which can best be dubbed the experienced preferences approach.
