MORA, JOHN JAMES. CARACTERÍSTICAS SOCIOECONÓMICAS Y CONSISTENCIA EN LA TOMA DE DECISIONES. estud.gerenc. [online]. 2002, vol.18, n.83, pp. 57-69. ISSN 0123-5923.
This essay analyzes the effects of social and economic characteristics on the consistency of the preferences. The analysis begins with an Allais Test on the consistency of choices made by students of Economics and International Business. It is found that sex, social and economic level, income, age and level of course work jointly are insufficient to explain the consistency of preferences. Nonetheless, the age of the student and his level of course work do provide a partial explanation of the observed consistency.
