The relative risk
r and the odds ratio 9 satisfy one of the following conditions:
Thus, the book's central theorem states that for a > 0 and b > 0, "the relative risk
aversion measure associated with an outcome variable is larger when the outcome variable is measured more inclusively or is less risky" (p.
Since such relative risks

In any case where a pharmaceutical agent creates an increased relative risk
of an adverse event greater than 2, the plaintiff's attorney can definitively state from a scientific and epidemiological standpoint that the event was more likely than not caused by the agent.

It examines the following: * the annual projected after-tax cash flows the foundry will generate; * the cash flows discounted at an appropriate rate of return, taking into account the relative risk
of not realizing the projected cash flow and the time value of encumbered funds; * the estimated residual value of the asset at the end of its remaining useful life; * the residual value converted to its present value equivalent; * the present value of the after-tax cash flow combined with the present value of the determined residual.
