Talk:Aumann agreement

From Lesswrongwiki

I removed this: "Outside of well-functioning prediction markets, Aumann agreement can probably only be approximated by careful deliberative discourse: whether deliberation tends to resolve disagreements in practice is an empirical question." I can see the relevance of prediction markets (market actors have incentives to disagree with the market price iff they really genuinely believe that the market is wrong), but I don't think it's really the same thing. And deliberation seems even less relevant: in pure Aumann agreement, the agents don't even have to share evidence, just recite their probability evidence. ---- Zack M.
