Stochastic dominance implies that Expected utility strategic decision models for general insurers. decision maker will select the alternative that is as good or better in all respects than other alternatives. Critical discussions and analytical details are found in Kreps 1988whose formulation is followed here, and Schervish 1995. I focus on transitivity, not simply because its simplicity belies the existence of some unsuspected difficulties but also because it is a shared cornerstone of decision theory and social choice under the assumption of consequentialism.

We have seen that a risk-averse person refuses to play an actuarially fair game. This is increasing utility at a decreasing rate for each additional unit of wealth. Because the vast majority of software is produced in the United States, there is little incentive in other countries for the governments to enforce laws that are aimed at protecting foreign interests while harming local businesses.

Preferences were risk averse in the gain domain and risk seeking in the loss domain. The expected utility theory then says if the axioms provided by von Neumann-Morgenstern are satisfied, then the individuals behave as if they were trying to maximize the expected utility.

Such a person will need incentives to be willing to play the game. While the discussions about these assumptions These are called the continuity and independence assumptions. VaR pays no attention to the loss magnitude beyond its value, implying indifference of an investor with regard to losing the VaR or a possibly considerably bigger loss, and it is complicated to optimize VaR.

Choice under Uncertainty: Expected Utility Theory

The above example shows a decision-maker who is relatively risk neutral. The student should be able to compute expected gains and expected utilities. Each product consists of a utility and a weight attached to the objective probability. This is justified for normal return distributions or quadratic utility functions. Closely related is the expected utility function Kahneman and Tversky 1979 proposed under another descriptive model of choice under uncertainty, as an alternative to vNM.

Where these options come from is not something that the theory of rational choice has anything to say about.

Choice under Uncertainty: Expected Utility Theory

Similarly, a Virginia man faces up to 1 year in prison, after pleading guilty to setting up a web site that made illegally copied software available for easy downloading. As stated in Section V, there is evidence that the development and enforcement of software piracy legislation is directly related to the existence of a domestic software industry. The legal system, in most countries, is founded on the concept described above.
