Dr. Gaoji Hu recently had a paper published in the Games and Economic Behavior, a tier-one journal in SUFE list. The paper, titled “The revealed preference theory of stable matchings with one-sided preferences”, was coauthored with Dr. Jiang Tao from School of Economics, Singapore Management University and Dr. Rui Tang from Department of Economics, Princeton University.
We investigate the testable implications of the theory of stable matchings in two-sided matching markets with one-sided preferences. Our main result connects the revealed preference analysis to the well-known lattice structure of the set of stable matchings, and tests the rationalizability of a data set by analyzing the joins and meets of matchings.
