Example text

Since EV(J, p) E X for all pairs f E F and p E P, and X is the codomain of C E : F __.. X, then for every pair f E F and pEP there is a f* E F such that CE(J*) = EV(J,p), which implies f E Hp (CE(J*),p). Consequently, if there is a p* E P such that Hp(x,p*) ~ Gp(x) for all x EX, then for every f E F there is f* E F such that CE(J*) = EV(J,p*) and f E Hp(CE(J*),p*) ~ Gp (CE(J*)), which implies CE(J) :s; CE(J*) = EV(f,p*). Analogously for risk & uncertainty 0 attraction. Proposition 21. (F, t) exhibits uncertainty aversion (introduced by Definition 19) if and only if there is a p* E P such that Lp(x,p*) ~ Gp(x) (these sets are introduced by Definitions 6 and 8) for all x E X; attraction if and only if Lp(x,p*) ;2 GF(x); neutrality if and only if Lp(x,p*) = Gp(x).

Proof: Let us first demonstrate the necessary condition for risk & uncertainty aversion. , CE(J) > x while EV(f,p) :s; x, so that EV(J,p) < C E( f). , (F, t) does not exhibit risk & uncertainty aversion. Let us now demonstrate the sufficient condition. Since EV(J, p) E X for all pairs f E F and p E P, and X is the codomain of C E : F __.. X, then for every pair f E F and pEP there is a f* E F such that CE(J*) = EV(J,p), which implies f E Hp (CE(J*),p). Consequently, if there is a p* E P such that Hp(x,p*) ~ Gp(x) for all x EX, then for every f E F there is f* E F such that CE(J*) = EV(J,p*) and f E Hp(CE(J*),p*) ~ Gp (CE(J*)), which implies CE(J) :s; CE(J*) = EV(f,p*).

Remark: While aversion to increasing uncertainty & PM -decreasing risk and aversion toP M -increasing risk do not imply aversion to increasing uncertainty and aversion to increasing uncertainty & PM -decreasing risk and attraction to increasing uncertainty do not imply aversion to PMdecreasing risk, aversion to increasing uncertainty and aversion to PMdecreasing risk imply aversion to increasing uncertainty & PM -decreasing risk provided that Assumption 5 holds, as Proposition 18 states.
