We consider economic models under uncertainty where risk-averse decision makers must choose from a given set of random variables. This paper develops a price characterization of the set of efficient state-payoff bundles when preferences are risk averse and state dependent. We also show how the set of such efficient bundles varies when different classes of state-dependent utility functions are considered.
