Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 99, issue 3, 534-536
This paper exposes a difficulty in applying the revealed preference methodology to the definition of subjective probabilities. It shows that in the presence of unknowable states it is impossible to provide choice-based foundations of prior probabilities in Bayes' theory.
