There are two main themes in Ch. 3. Firstly, the demonstration that the choice behaviour of the rational economic person of standard economic theory can be shown, formally, to be equivalent to the computational activity of a Turing Machine. Secondly, the formal demonstration that preference generation is computably infeasible.

Keywords:   choice function, computably rational choice, economic rationality, Turing Machines, uncomputable preferences, undecidable choice
