  • Economic and Environmental Risk and Uncertainty

    The 1980s and 1990s have been a period of exciting new developments in the modelling of decision-making under risk and uncertainty. Extensions of the theory of expected utility and alternative theories of 'non-expected utility' have been devised to explain many puzzles and paradoxes of individual and collective choice behaviour. This volume ...
