Simple Belief Elicitation

Author

Abstract

We present methods of belief elicitation which are applicable for any non-trivial utility function. Unlike existing techniques that account for deviations from risk-neutrality, these methods are highly transparent to sub- jects. Rather than identifying beliefs exactly we identify bounds on beliefs, thus trading o precision for generality and simplicity.
