Authors: Ariel Pakes , Jack Porter , Kate Ho and Joy Ishii
Date: 31 January 2015
Type: Journal Article, Econometrica, Vol. 83, No. 1, pp. 315--334
DOI: 10.3982/ECTA6865


This paper provides conditions under which the inequality constraints generated by either single agent optimizing behavior or the best response condition of multiple agent problems can be used as a basis for estimation and inference. An application illustrates how the use of these inequality constraints can simplify the analysis of complex behavioral models.
