The likelihood of these events depends on an unknown set of causes which we assume are exclusive and exhaustive; that is, one and only one of them must occur.

For instance, we The theorem states that the posterior probabilities are proportional to the product of the prior probabilities, p(Ai), and the likelihood of the observed event given the cause, p(B | Ai). This theorem is the main tool of the socalled ‘Bayesian inference’. In this paradigm Bayesian–Nash equilibrium all the unknown quantities in an inference problem are random variables with some probability distribution and the inference about the variable of interest is made by using this theorem as follows.

Thus the last paragraph of Arrow’s paper reads as follows: ‘It has been assumed that learning takes place only as a by-product of ordinary production.
