This book is designed as auxiliary source for the students who are taking Applied Econometrics course. It is intended to clarify basic econometrics methods with examples especially for . Decision–making using probability In this chapter, we look at how we can use probability in order to aid decision–making. Expected Monetary Value Intuition should now help to explain how probability can be used to aid the decision–making process. For example, suppose we’re considering launching a new product on the market. WeFile Size: 59KB.

Decision theory Last updated Novem Decision theory (or the theory of choice not to be confused with choice theory) is the study of an agent's choices. [1] Decision theory can be broken into two branches: normative decision theory, which analyzes the outcomes of decisions or determines the optimal decisions given constraints and assumptions, and descriptive . This book finds a broad domain of relevance in statistics and the social sciences, provides fresh perspectives on the informational theory of comparisons, and encompasses topical areas such as subjectivist probability, investment decision making, and income distributionBrand: Springer Singapore.

Decision theory (or the theory of choice not to be confused with choice theory) is the study of an agent's choices.
