Question details

Imagine that the U.S. is preparing for the outbreak of an unusual disease, which is expected to kill 600 people. Two alternative programs to combat the disease have been proposed.

If program A is adopted, 400 people will die.

If program B is adopted, there is a one-third probability nobody will die and a two-thirds probability that 600 people will die.

Which of the two programs would you favor? Make your decision and put your reasoning in writing. Show why you chose the program you did, and what kind of way you processed this decision. Be as detailed as possible.
