Abstract

Quasi-linearity of preferences plays a central role in auction theory and mechanism design (e.g. the revenue equivalence theorem, implementation in dominant strategies and the Rotten Kids theorem rely on this). We propose a simple test of quasi-linear preferences that can be used to test behavior by consumers and by bidders in auctions
