Ambiguity and Second-Order Belief
AbstractAnscombe and Aumann (1963) wrote a classic characterization of subjective expected utility theory. This paper employs the same domain for preference and a closely related (but weaker) set of axioms to characterize preferences that use second-order beliefs (beliefs over probability measures). Such preferences are of interest because they accommodate Ellsberg-type behavior. Copyright 2009 The Econometric Society.
