Abstract: How does risk aversion affect choices when expenses improve probabilities? Attempts to answer this question in the literature found an endogenous switching probability. In this paper we introduce a new concept of comparative attitude to risl, namely proper risk behavior and determine 1/2 as the threshold probability over which a more proper risk behavior agent becomes a gambler.
