Definition 4.

This leads to the notion of local risk aversion, which is both interesting in itself and useful for further analyses. (Local risk aversion): (Q, t) exhibits local risk aversion if for every x E X and q E Q there is a t* > 0 such that EV(q(t))- CE(q(t)) ~ 0 for all t E (O,t*], where q(t) = (xi(t),pi)~=l with xi(t) = x +t(xi -x) fori= 1, ... , n; attraction if EV (q(t))- CE (q(t)) ~ 0; neutrality if EV (q( t)) - C E (q( t)) = 0. Consequently, if Assumption 2 holds, there is local risk aversion if Definition 16.
