Call for Papers: Special Issue on Decision Making Under Uncertainty: Theory of Applications

The Special Issue will be edited by Jianjun Miao, Boston University, in honor of Professor Larry Epstein.

Decision making under uncertainty is an active research area in microeconomics and has wide applications in almost all fields of economics. It studies the following fundamental questions: What is the nature of risk and uncertainty? How is uncertainty characterized and quantified? How are preferences represented from choices under uncertainty? How are attitudes toward uncertainty measured? Answers to these questions are the cornerstone to understand human behavior and market equilibrium. They are also critical to resolve many puzzles in macroeconomics and finance such as the equity premium puzzle.

Professor Larry Epstein has made many fundamental contributions in this area.

Economic Theory will publish a special issue around the themes to which Professor Larry Epstein has extensively contributed. Authors are invited to submit papers that are related to the theory and applications of decision making under uncertainty. Other related topics will also be considered.

The submission deadline is July 1, 2021.
