Abstract

In addition to showing the connection between parallel contingent and noncontingent risk comparison problems, we articulate a method for solving both kinds of problems using the "basis" approach. The basis approach has often been used implicitly, but we argue that there is value to making its use explicit, particularly in indicating which new, previously unsolved problems can readily be solved by the basis approach and which cannot.
