50 Up to the present day, any discussion of Markowitz’s µ–σ2 rule includes this conclusion on its ‘rationality’. It seems worth emphasising that this entire argument is based on declaring the EU principle the only ‘rational’ one. It is true that there has been a time when the von Neumann–Morgenstern definition of rationality was irrefutable; and most works on the relationship of the EU principle and Markowitz’s µ–σ2 rule stem from this time. 2, the EU principle’s claim to absolute right cannot be maintained.

A game was called ‘fair’, if its entrance fee was equal to the expected gain of the gamble. It was simply assumed that if the entrance fee is equal to the expected value, a gamble could not favour one or the other player.
