Authors: Wang, X. T.

Keywords: Decision-making
Information framing

Issue Date: 2001
Abstract: We examined how Chinese participants reacted to hypothetical problems of managerial decision-making. We demonstrated in the study that the gain-loss situation and the information framing of choice separately affected risk preference of the participants. In addition, we examined the relationship between risk perception and goal-settings (achievement motives) of the participants.
