Dutch Books Arguments and Learning in a Nonexpected Utility Framework
AbstractIf an individual follows maximin expected utility theory, then a smart outsider cannot, in general, make a bet with him/her that is certain to win in a single time period. However, the author shows that, when there are many time periods, this is possible in his model unless the decisionmaker uses strategic behavior. There are some exceptions, in particular for small deviations from expected utility profits may be less than the transactions costs.
