[NOTE: A person would be willing to buy or sell an item for $x if and only that person is indifferent between having the item and having $x for sure.] Compute the probability α such that Jiong is indifferent between lottery p D and L( α ). 4) Dutta, chapter 27: 19 5) Dutta, chapter 27: 20 6) Plot your preferences on L (Y) = {$100, $50, $0}....
