State-dependent utility and decision theory Primary tabs. Voir (active tab) Fichiers attachés suggesting recourse to hypothetical preferences. In the context of one-person games with moral hazard, a generalised representation theorem (proved in the Appendix) asserts the existence of a closed convex set O of probabilities in the state space. The aim of the book is to develop a decision theory that is tailored for ‚real™ agents; i.e. agents, like us, who are uncertain about a great many things and are limited in their capacity to represent, evaluate and deliberate, but which nonetheless want to get things right to the extent that they can. The book is motivated by two broad claims.

Moral Hazard, the Savage Framework, and State-Dependent Utility Jean Baccelliy Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy February 7, Abstract In light of the importance of such revealed preference methodology in decision theory, this claim is methodologically remarkable. A Theory of Bayesian Decision Making Bayesian decision theory is based on the notion that a decision-maker’s choice among alter- design of optimal insurance in the presence of moral hazard, in which the insurer knows the insured’s prior preferences .

On its or so pages, Resnik's book covers most themes of modern decision theory: decisions under uncertainty, under risk (with separate chapters on probability theory and the concepts of utility), game theory, and social choice s: 10 Contract Theory (pg. ) Moral Hazard (pg. ) Moral Hazard with a Continuum of Effort Levels—The First-Order Approach (pg. ) Moral Hazard with Multiple Signals (pg. ) Adverse Selection—The “Lemons” Problem (pg. ) Adverse Selection—The Principal–Agent Problem (pg. ).

Decision makers are characterized by preference relations, ≳, on F. With few exceptions, preference relations are taken to be complete (that is, for all f and g in F, either f≳g or g≳f) and transitive binary relations on F. Decision theory with moral hazard and state-dependent preferences.

The approach is preference based, and the result is an axiomatic subjective expected utility model of Bayesian decision making under uncertainty with state-dependent preferences. This qualifies the incompatibility view, that is ubiquitous in decision theory.

Second, in general, moral hazard is not sufficient to overcome the challenges posed by state-dependent utility to the behavioral identification of beliefs. This qualifies the sufficiency view, that is influential in decision theory. In decision theory, this is best known as a situation of moral hazard.

Focusing on a particularly simple case, I sketch the first systematic analysis of moral hazard in the canonical Savage framework. An expected utility theory for state-dependent preferences Motivation of the original work In the standard formulation of subjective expected utility theory, the preferences on alternativecoursesofactionsareassumedtobestateindependent.

Therepresentation of these preferences consists of a subjective probability measure on the set of states. It is commonplace to formulate theories of individual decision-making under uncertainty using three sets: the set of states of nature, S, the set of consequences, C, and the set of acts, L.

Following Savage () we define nature as the object of concern to the decision–maker and a state of nature as a portrayal of nature leaving no relevant aspect undescribed. A consequence is anything. This paper develops a theory of moral hazard in which the agent takes the role of strategic decision-maker.

Career concerns give rise to preferences over risk, which in turn create an incentive for the agent to manipulate the project’s risk-return tradeoff to the disadvantage of the principal.

Downloadable. This survey paper prepared for the Handbook of Utility Theory covers the axiomatic foundations of decision making under uncertainty when conditional preferences are allowed to be state dependent, leading to an expected state-dependent utility representation.

In the context of games against nature, subjective probabilities are not identified from observable choices among games.

This book brings together some of his major contributions to the economic theory of decision making under uncertainty, and also several essays. These include an important essay on 'Decision theory under moral hazard and state dependent preferences' that significantly extends modern theory, and which provides rigorous foundations for subsequent chapters.

The Mind under the Axioms reviews two basic ingredients of our understanding of human decisions – conative aspects (preferences) and cognitive aspects (beliefs). These ingredients are axiomatized in modern decision theory in the view to obtain a formally and empirically tractable representation of the decision-maker.

It is a familiar argument that advocates accommodating the so-called paradoxes of decision theory by abandoning the “independence” postulate. After all, if we grant that choice reveals preference, the anomalous choice patterns of the Allais and Ellsberg problems (reviewed in Section 3) violate postulate P2 (“sure thing”) of Savage's () system.
