Arrow’s theorem and ecological decision making

Summary

We survey an application of decision theory in environmental risk management and illustrate, by means of Arrow’s theorem, how basic concepts of social welfare theory transform into applicable postulates that may aid the preparation of ecological and political decisions.

Key words: Multiple criteria decision aid in ecology, social welfare theory (economy).
