Manipulation Of Choice Behavior
The authors introduce and study the problem of manipulation of choice behavior. In a class of two-stage models of decision making, with the agent's choices determined by three "Psychological variables," they imagine that a subset of these variables can be selected by a "Manipulator." To what extent does this confer control of the agent's behavior? Within the specified framework, which overlaps with two existing models of choice under cognitive constraints, they provide a complete answer to this question.
