Aversions to Impatience, Uncertainty and Illiquidity

Edmond Malinvaud has not only fixed the French terminology in Econometrics, Microeconomics, but he has also derived scientific results of prime interest concerning the intertemporal equilibrium or the synthesis between the Walrasian microeconomics and the Keynesian macroeconomics. Malinvaud has also opened new research directions, which are often less known. One of these directions is developed in this paper. Due to their underlying assumptions, the standard concepts of risk aversion and impatience are generally defined separately and represented by scalar measures. This implies many shortcomings, for instance, the risk aversion remain unchanged, whatever type of risk is considered. This paper provides a more complete analysis of aversions, which clearly emphasizes their multidimensionality and the necessity for the measures of risk aversion and impatience aversion to be defined jointly.
