The knob of the discord

Amarante, Massimiliano; Maccheroni, Fabio

For (S, Σ) a measurable space, let C1 and C2 and be convex, weak* closed sets of probability measures on Σ. We show that if C1 ∪ C2 satisfies the Lyapunov property, then there exists a set A ∈ Σ such that minμ1 ∈ C1 μ1(A) > maxμ2 ∈ C2 (A). We give applications to Maxmin Expected Utility and to the core of a lower probability.
