the static world of undergraduate economics. This book
will provide context for undergraduate students by
placing the mainstream of economic thought side by side
with more heterodox schools. This is in keeping with the
Rethinking Economics campaign which argues that students
are better served when they are presented with a
spectrum of economic ideas rather than just the dominant

ISBN : 9781119286295.
519.2 DEF 146507
This book provides the theory of probability from a
subjectivist viewpoint.It proceeds from a detailed
discussion of the philosophical mathematical aspects to a
detailed mathematical treatment of probability and
statistics.De Finetti-s theory of probability is one of
the foundations of Bayesian theory. He stated that
probability is nothing but a subjective analysis of the
likelihood that something will happen and that that
probability does not exist outside the mind.It is the
rate at which a person is willing to bet on something
happening.This view is directly opposed to the
classicist/ frequentist view of the likelihood of a
particular outcome of an event, which assumes that the
same event could be identically repeated many times over,
and the -probability- of a particular outcome has
to do with the fraction of the time that outcome results
from the repeated trials.
