    3 Uncertainty in Technological and Economic Factors in EPA’s Decision Making. I n Chapter 1 the committee specified three factors that affect decisions made by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): estimates of human health risks, technology availability, and economics (see Figure ).As outlined in Chapter 1, the legal context within which a decision is made .   The results distinguish between product and seller uncertainty, show that product uncertainty has a stronger effect on price premiums than seller uncertainty, and identify the most influential information signals that reduce product uncertainty. The study’s implications for the emerging role of product uncertainty in online markets are by: Uncertainty and Consumer Behavior Summary Summary 1/2 Consumers and managers frequently make decisions in which there is uncertainty about the future. This uncertainty is characterized by the term risk, which applies when each of the possible outcomes and its probability of occurence is known.
