Composite indicator of German regional policy and its use for optimizing subsidies to regional labour markets
German structural policy is characterized by a composite indicator with three targets:(1) minimization of unemployment, (2) maximization of GDP, and (3) equalization of regional unemployment rates.

A model for constructing quadratic and polynomial objective functions in n target variables from interviewing an expert is considered. The person interviewed is presented a set of incomplete
Least squares estimation of quadratic preference functions for econometric decision models based on survey data
In an econometric decision model which is an optimization model in the usual sense, a scalar-valued preference function is needed. In the frequently applied “linear-quadratic” control theory approach
Quadratic Social Welfare Functions
John Harsanyi has provided an intriguing argument that social welfare can be expressed as a weighted sum of individual utilities. His theorem has been criticized on the grounds that a central axiom,
Operationalizing a Macro-Economic Preference Function
For a preference function U(y) to be a proper representation of the community’s well being, y should contain all relevant aspects of life and will therefore be of high dimension. In any analysis to

According to the static theory of decision-making under uncertainty, the policy maker will take that action that maximizes expected utility. In the dynamic theory several consecutive periods play a
MIXTURE SYMMETRY AND QUADRATIC UTILITY
The independence axiom of expected utility theory has recently been weakened to the betweenness axiom. In this paper, an even weaker axiom, called mixture symmetry, is presented. The corresponding

Abstract : Given any problem of decision under risk to which the expected utility hypothesis applies, one may associate to it first a riskless problem in which random disturbances are replaced by
