Linear Demand Systems are Inconsistent with Discrete Choice

Sonia Jaffe / E. Glen Weyl
Published Online: 2010-12-21 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1935-1704.1729

We show that with more than two options, a discrete choice model cannot generate linear demand. In doing so, we demonstrate a prediction of such discrete choice models that is falsifiable based on local second-order properties of demand.

Keywords: linear demand; discrete choice
