''Uninsurable Risks: Uncertainty in Production, the Value of Information and Price Dispersion''
( 2008, Vol. 28 No.8 )
This article digresses over the interaction of uncertainty with the firm's optimal decisions in a simple framework: a standard price-taking (short-run restricted) single-input and output unit, subject to the interaction with a zero-mean Bernoulli lottery. The firm is always considered an expected profit-maximizing entity. We inspect the consequences of exogenous uncertainty on the optimal allocations and on its “mean-(and)variance” valuation position. On one hand, we contrast the effect of different sources of uncertainty on the producer's problem – input and output prices and quantities. On the other, we analyse the impact of ex-post flexibility of the decision variables.
