The Comonotonic Sure-Thing Principle
AbstractThis article identifies the common characterizing property, the comonotonic sure-thing principle, that underlies the rank-dependent direction in non-expected utility. This property restricts Savage's sure-thing principle to comonotonic acts, and is characterized in full generality by means of a new functional form--cumulative utility--that generalizes the Choquet integral. Thus, a common generalization of all existing rank-dependent forms is obtained, including rank-dependent expected utility, Choquet expected utility, and cumulative prospect theory.
