Universality of Bayesian Predictions

Alessio Sancetta
Given the sequential update nature of Bayes rule, Bayesian methods find natural application to prediction problems. Advances in computational methods allow to routinely use Bayesian methods in econometrics. Hence, there is a strong case for feasible predictions in a Bayesian framework. This paper studies the theoretical properties of Bayesian predictions and shows that under minimal conditions we can derive finite sample bounds for the loss incurred using Bayesian predictions under the Kullback-Leibler divergence. In particular,...
