L’analyse axiomatique et l’attitude par rapport au risque


  • Jean Baccelli


This epistemological note examines the status of risk attitude concepts in decision theory. At first sight, axiomatic analysis does not rely on those concepts, which illustrates a certain neutrality of decision models regarding risk attitudes. Further analysis, however, highlights the importance of the conditional variation and the strengthening of risk attitudes, which establishes the axiomatic significance of risk attitude concepts. Classification JEL : B41, D81.
