    Justification Logic with Confidence.Ted Shear & John Quiggin - forthcoming - Studia Logica:1-28.
    Justification logics are a family of modal logics whose non-normal modalities are parametrised by a type-theoretic calculus of terms. The first justification logic was developed by Sergei Artemov to provide an explicit modal logic for arithmetical provability in which these terms were taken to pick out proofs. But, justification logics have been given various other interpretations as well. In this paper, we will rely on an interpretation in which the modality \ is read ‘S accepts \ as justification for \’.

    Uncertainty, Production, Choice, and Agency: The State-Contingent Approach.Robert G. Chambers & John Quiggin - 2000 - Cambridge University Press.
    This book demonstrates that the state-contingent approach provides the best way to think about all problems in the economics of uncertainty, including problems ...

    The Value of Information and the Value of Awareness.John Quiggin - 2016 - Theory and Decision 80 (2):167-185.
    Recent literature has examined the problem facing decision makers with bounded awareness, who may be unaware of some states of nature. A question that naturally arises here is whether a value of awareness, analogous to value of information, can be attributed to changes in awareness. In this paper, such a value is defined. It is shown that the sum VOA +\documentclass[12pt]{minimal} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{wasysym} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{upgreek} \setlength{\oddsidemargin}{-69pt} \begin{document}$$+$$\end{document} VOI is constant and, except for scale effects, independent of the (...)

  6. Production Under Uncertainty and Choice Under Uncertainty in the Emergence of Generalized Expected Utility Theory.John Quiggin - 2001 - Theory and Decision 51 (2/4):125-144.
    This paper presents a personal view of the interaction between the analysis of choice under uncertainty and the analysis of production under uncertainty. Interest in the foundations of the theory of choice under uncertainty was stimulated by applications of expected utility theory such as the Sandmo model of production under uncertainty. This interest led to the development of generalized models including rank-dependent expected utility theory. In turn, the development of generalized expected utility models raised the question of whether such models (...)

  7. Globalization and Economic Sovereignty.John Quiggin - 2001 - Journal of Political Philosophy 9 (1):56–80.
    In this paper, attention will focus primarily on economic and financial aspects of the globalization debate, and on their implications for public policy. Nevertheless, these issues cannot be separated from their historical and political context. The current discussion of globalization can only be understood in relation to the development of economic and political institutions over the past century. Globalization is frequently discussed as a counterpoint to national sovereignty. It is commonly asserted that globalization has eroded national sovereignty or that it (...)

    Games Without Rules.Flavio Menezes & John Quiggin - 2007 - Theory and Decision 63 (4):315-347.
    We introduce the notion of an outcome space, in which strategic interactions are embedded. This allows us to investigate the idea that one strategic interaction might be an expanded version of another interaction. We then characterize the Nash equilibria arising in such extensions and demonstrate a folk-type theorem stating that any individually rational element of the outcome space is a Nash equilibrium.

    Supermodularity and the Comparative Statics of Risk.John Quiggin & Robert G. Chambers - 2007 - Theory and Decision 62 (2):97-117.
    In this article, it is shown that a wide range of comparative statics results from expected utility theory can be extended to generalized expected utility models using the tools of supermodularity theory. In particular, a range of concepts of decreasing absolute risk aversion may be formulated in terms of the supermodularity properties of certainty equivalent representations of preferences.

    A Preference Model for Choice Subject to Surprise.Simon Grant & John Quiggin - 2015 - Theory and Decision 79 (2):167-180.
    Grant and Quiggin suggest that agents employ heuristics to constrain the set of acts under consideration before applying standard decision theory, based on their restricted model of the world to the remaining acts. The aim of this paper is to provide an axiomatic foundation, and an associated representation theorem, for the preference model proposed by Grant and Quiggin. The unawareness of the agent is encoded both in the specification of the states and in an elaboration of the set of consequences. (...)

    Sub-Models for Interactive Unawareness.Simon Grant, J. Jude Kline, Patrick O’Callaghan & John Quiggin - 2015 - Theory and Decision 79 (4):601-613.
    We propose a notion of a sub-model for each agent at each state in the Heifetz et al. model of interactive unawareness. Presuming that each agent is fully cognizant of his sub-model causes no difficulty and fully describes his knowledge and his beliefs about the knowledge and awareness of others. We use sub-models to motivate the HMS conditions on possibility correspondences.

    Dynamic Awareness and Zero Probability Beliefs.John Quiggin - 2017 - Theory and Decision 83 (3):309-313.
    In this note, it is shown that in a Bayesian model with unawareness of impossible, or vanishingly improbable, events, awareness can only change after such an improbable event has actually been observed.
