Strategic behavior and counterfactuals

Cristina Bicchieri
1988 Synthese  
Game theorists assume these beliefs to be rational in the very special sense of being objectively correct but no explanation is offered of the mechanism generating this property of the belief system.  ...  In particular, I analyze the case of multiple equilibria, since in this case there exists a whole set of rational beliefs, so that no player can ever be certain that the others believe he has certain beliefs  ...  The best known model of belief change is Bayesian conditionalization: beliefs are represented by probability functions defined over sentences and rational changes of beliefs are represented by conditionalization  ...

BELIEF-TWISTING SHOCKS AND THE MACROECONOMY

Jacek Suda
2018 Macroeconomic Dynamics  
In the model, households hold twisted beliefs concerning the likelihood and persistence of recession and boom states that are affected by the Great Depression.  ...  These initial beliefs are substantially different from the true data generating process and are only gradually unwound during subsequent years.  ...  As a result, the rapidly changing beliefs about transition probability matrix bring substantial revisions of optimal investment, consumption and labor supply decisions.  ...

Against conditionalization

F. Bacchus, H. E. Kyburg, M. Thalos
1990 Synthese  
the incoherent believer who knows himself to be incoherent, that in his case it is never a rational change of belief to change belief by conditionalization.  ...  Now if conditionalization is the truth about rational change of belief, then such a believer has no rational way of simply "converting" to rationality.  ...

Probabilistic dynamic belief revision

Alexandru Baltag, Sonja Smets
2008 Synthese  
We investigate the discrete (finite) case of the Popper-Renyi theory of conditional probability, introducing discrete conditional probabilistic models for knowledge and conditional belief, and comparing  ...  We completely axiomatize the logic of conditional belief, knowledge and safe belief over conditional probabilistic models.  ...  The reason is that players' beliefs about the other players' rationality may change during the game: they may lose belief in others' rationality if some "surprising" moves are made.  ...

Endogenous Uncertainty: A Unified View of Market Volatility

Mordecai Kurz
1998 Social Science Research Network  
In sum, the theory of Rational Belief offers a very simple explanation to the observed riskless rate and equity premium.  ...  This asymmetry between optimists and pessimists flows directly from the rationality conditions of beliefs and implies that at most dates the pessimists have a stronger impact on the bill market.  ...  Rationality of belief permits the pessimists to hold a probability F or G which do not correspond to any specific empirical 1981:4 and 1982:1-1992:3.  ...
