I like this definition that was posted in that forum: "*An agent is rational if he/she does whatever the modeler (i.e. economist) would do in his/her position."*


The problem is with "does". Flipping a coin and doing X if heads and Y if tails can be the same optimum strategy for the modeler and the rational agent. Yet if it comes up heads for the modeler but tails for the rational agent they will *do* different things.
