    (Instituto de Economía. Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.)

Over the past two decades or so, an enormous amount of work has been done to improve the Expected Utility model. Two areas have attracted major attention: the possibility of describing unforeseen contingencies and the need to accommodate the kind of behavior referred to in Ellsberg’s paradox. This essay surveys both.
