|Abstract:||"The concept of statistical pessimism is introduced as it relates to the estimation of an unknown population parameter. Samples drawn from the population are then ordered on the basis of sample size in terms of increasing pessimism regarding the parameter value. Such an ordering can be achieved for a broad class of distributional parameters. The ordering is applied to bidding theory in order to explain why an individual bidder might adopt less aggressive behavior as the number of competitors increase."|
