Probability Weighting What we can explain with the introduced value function? Framing effects Reflection effects What about Allais Paradox (common ratio, and common consequence effects) Recall the common ratio effect example: A B ($4000, .80) ($3000) 20% 80% C D ($4000, .20) ($3000, .25) 65% 35% What about the following experimental result? A’ B’ ($5000, .001) ($5) 72% 28% C’ D’ (-$5000, .001) (-$5) 17% 83%
