Abstract:

The report formalizes three separable, although related decision-models of a problem involving rational approximations of optimally efficient allocations of landlabor under i an invariant set of security requirements and ii a variable set of information conditions. The descriptive base is derived from a well-documented New Guinea economic system, although the solutions are formally extended to a more generic class of decision problems. The decision models include i linear programming, ii decision making under certainty plus a game against nature with a minimax solution, and iii a statistical game Bayesian analysis. Author
