Abstract

Conditional Expected Utility Theory (CEUT) provides an axiomatic foundation for a theory of decision under uncertainty which allows agents to choose which event in the state space will occur. Here we provide an alternative axiomatization of this situation. In this framework CEUT may be seen a special case of Decision Theory with Moral Hazard; at the same time it is possible to describe the conditions in which this theory is free from possible difficulties.
