Utility index , Applied Statistics

If the economy does well, the investor's wealth is 2 and if the economy does poorly the investor's wealth is 1. Both outcomes are equally likely. The investor is offered to invest in shares of a project that gains 3=2 if the economy does well and loses 1 if the economy does poorly. Therefore, if the investor obtains α shares of this project his wealth is 2 + 3α/2

with probability 1/2 and 1= α with probability 1/2. The investor is an expected utility maximizer with utility index u(z) = ln z. What is the optimal α for this investor? ( α must be between 0 and 1).
