Agreeing to disagree in a countable space of equiprobable states of nature
An example is given in which agents agree to disagree in a countable space of equiprobable states of nature. Even in this unorthodox setting, if the sets of the information partitions are intervals, an agreement theorem holds. A result that describes the margin for disagreement is also obtained.
