Adding Asymmetrically Dominated Alternatives: Violations of Regularity and the Similarity Hypothesis

Abstract

An asymmetrically dominated alternative is dominated by one item in the set but not by another. Adding such an alternative to a choice set can increase the probability of choosing the item that dominates it. This result points to the inadequacy of many current choice models and suggests product line strategies that might not otherwise be intuitively plausible.
