risk aversion may seem surprising, but it is actually apparent from the risk-neutral case. Speciflcally, the best response of a bidder in a flrst price auction involving two bidders is to bid one-half of her value regardless of the fraction between 1/2 and 1 that her opponent bids.

In economics and finance, risk aversion is the behavior of humans (especially consumers and investors), who, when exposed to uncertainty, attempt to lower that is the hesitation of a person to agree to a situation with an unknown payoff rather than another situation with a more predictable payoff but possibly lower expected example, a risk-averse investor might choose.

We analyze the role of risk aversion and intertemporal substitution in a simple dynamic general equilibrium model of investment and savings. Our main finding is that risk aversion cannot by itself explain a negative relationship between aggregate investment and aggregate uncertainty, as the effect of increased uncertainty on investment also depends on the intertemporal elasticity of by: of intertemporal substitution.

The size of risk aversion relative to unity determines the sign of the intertemporal hedging portfolio, while elasticity of intertemporal substitution affects only its magnitude.

The portfolio weight is independent of elasticity of intertemporal substitution only for the case of a constant investment opportunity. Risk Aversion and Intertemporal Substitution in the Capital Asset Pricing Model Alberto Giovannini, Philippe Weil.

This paper develops a class of recursive, but not necessarily expected utility, preferences over intertemporal consumption lotteries.

An important feature of these general preferences is that they permit risk attitudes to be disentangled from the degree of intertemporal substitutability.

The Utility-Based Valuation of Risk illustrates how risk aversion naturally arises for agents with concave utility functions. The mathematical basis for this result is Jensen's inequality.

Conversely, the rejection of a sure thing in favor of a gamble of lower or equal expected value is known as risk-seeking behavior. The psychophysics of chance induce overweighting of sure things and of improbable events, relative to events of moderate probability.
