Value of Information 9. While we often rely on models of certain information as you’ve seen in the class so far, many economic problems require that we tackle uncertainty head on. A scenario represents a potential realization of the important parameters of the problem. Ana’s utility function is U = p w, where wis her wealth. One approach to coping with this uncertainty is to describe the uncertainty with scenarios. A scenario represents a potential realization of the important parameters of the problem.
