Abstract
I construct a decision-theoretic puzzle based on the assumption that it is possible for there to be a team of infinitely many people whose utility scales are unbounded. I argue that the puzzle can be resolved, without requiring that no rational agent should have unbounded utility scales, by employing a more general definition of utility, on which utility is measured not by amounts of returns but by changes in total wealth.
