A Note on First Degree Stochastic Dominance

Lars Peter Hansen, C.A. Holt, D. Peled

A link is established between stochastic dominance and a different dominance relationship which we call pointwise dominance. This provides the basis for making several comparisons of expected values of non-decreasing functions of random variables. We discuss economic problems for which the application of stochastic dominance results depends on this link.
