Expected utility hypotheses and the Allais Paradox : contemporary discussions of decisions under uncertainty with Allais' rejoinder by Maurice Allais( Book )

17 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Utility theory or, value theory in general, is certainly the cornerstone of decision theory, game theory, microecon~mics, and all social and political theories which deal with public decisions. Recently the American School of utility, founded by von N eumann Morgenstern, encountered a far-going criticism by the French School of utility represented by its founder Allais. The whole basis of the theory of decisions involving risk has been shaken and put into question. Consequently, basic research in the fundamentals of utility and value theory evolved into a crisis. Like any crisis in basic research, and this one was not an exception, it was very fruitful. One may simply say: Allais versus von Neumann-Morgenstern, or the French School of utility versus the American School, became one of the battlefields of scientific development which proved to be a most creative source of new advances and new developments in all those sciences which are based on evaluation of utilities
L'impôt sur le capital et la réforme monétaire by Maurice Allais( Book )

39 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in French and Spanish and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important essay is aimed at proposing a new tax system in compliance with the principles of a liberal society. For the author, the target of a rational tax system is not the equality between individuals, but the proportionality of the tax burden with regard to the taxpayer?s overall input in the economy. Therefore, all taxes on incomes and profits should be removed and replaced by taxes on capital, both for individuals and for companies. Allais?s analyses are harsh but sagacious. Disclosing the arbitrary features of the French tax system, he conveys the readers conversant with tax policy an unmatchable reasoning in contemplation of future reforms

Cardinalism : a fundamental approach by Maurice Allais( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is concerned with the problems of whether a utility concept that is cardinal -- insofar as ratios between utility differences are significant -- exists or not, whether it is useful -- e.g. in creating testable models of behaviour -- or whether a merely ordinal preference function will do for all purposes. Some selected highlights from the debate between cardinalists and ordinalists are analyzed, but essentially this is a presentation of fresh elements in the case for cardinalism. Special themes analyzed include the distinction between utility and risk attitude, motivating decisions in case of uncertainty, multiperiod allocations and complementarity. Empirical evidence is presented and it seems that attempts at measuring utility give amazing results. The book will interest researchers, teachers and advanced students in economics, economic psychology, welfare theory and themes concerned with human behaviour

Markets, risk and money : essays in honor of Maurice Allais by Bertrand Munier( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most of the writings of Maurice Allais, 1988 Nobel Laureate in Economics have only been published in French. Thus to date, economists, management scientists and operations researchers have been severely restricted in gaining access to his work. Markets, Risk and Money presents, for the first time in English, Allais' unconventional views on economic competition, the significance of free markets and overlapping generations, risk psychology, central banking, taxation systems, monetary dynamics and reform. The volume provides a consistent vision of our society and offers readers an evaluation of the impact of Allais' work on our present body of knowledge. Markets, Risk and Money contains contributions from a number of distinguished European and American scholars including Bertrand Munier, Thierry Montbrial, J. Lesourne, Claude Ponsard, Edmond Malinvaud, André Babeau, Marcel Boiteux, Lola L. Lopes, Mark J. Machina, James B. Ramsey, Xavier Freixas, B. Roy and D. Bouyssou, Werner Leinfellner and Jean-Jacques Durand. A biographical sketch and complete bibliography of the author are also included
