Evaluating Risk Management Strategies Using Stochastic Dominance With A Risk Free Asset


  • Gloy, Brent A.
  • Baker, Timothy G.


The stochastic dominance with a risk free asset (SDRA) criteria are evaluated. Results show that the inclusion of the risk free asset (combined with the traditional assumptions of stochastic dominance) produce risk efficiency criteria that are very powerful at narrowing the risk management alternatives relevant for farm manager's further consideration.
