text: "Based on the cultural formation of continuous preferences framework\r\nof
Pichler [16], this paper analyzes the evolution of preferences\r\nand behavior
in a two cultural groups setting. We show that the qualitative\r\ndynamic properties
depend crucially on what parents perceive\r\nas the optimal preferences for their
children to adopt. Under interâ€“\r\ngenerationally fixed optimal preferences, the
preferences of the cultural\r\ngroups will always stay distinct. If the optimal
preferences coincide\r\nwith those derived from the representative group behavior,
then\r\na multitude of convergence path types can realize. These contain both\r\nan
interâ€“generational assimilation process toward the same preference\r\npoint, as
well as interâ€“generational dissimilation."
