Subjective Expected Utility with Non-Increasing Risk Aversion
It is shown that assumptions about risk aversion, usually studied under the pre-supposition of expected utility maximization, have a surprising extra merit at an earlier stage of the measurement work: together with the sure-thing principle, these assumptions imply subjective expected utility maximization for monotonic continuous weak orders.
