Decomposing Input Adjustments under Price and Production Uncertainty

Abstract

A decomposition of input adjustments for stochastic technologies is developed and applied to the case of actuarially fair production insurance. The decomposition consists of a pure-risk effect and an expansion effect which are analogous to the Hicks-Allen decomposition familiar from consumer theory. Copyright 2001, Oxford University Press.
