Abstract

This note gives sufficient conditions of cross risk vulnerability introduced by Malevergne and Rey (2005), which is the equivalent condition to guarantee that an unfair non-monetary background risk makes decision makers more risk averse. The sufficient conditions determined by this note expand the results for univariate utility function into bivariate utility functions.
