Abstract

In this paper we first extend the theory of almost stochastic dominance (ASD) (for risk averters) to include the ASD for risk-seeking investors. We then study the relationship between ASD for risk seekers and ASD for risk averters. Recently, Tsetlin, et al.(2015) develop the theory of generalized ASD (GASD). We then briefly discuss the advantages and disadvantages of ASD and GASD.
