Two experts, I and II, have two assessments regarding the real distribution over the states of nature. Expert I is more knowledgeable than expert II if following the advice of I is always more beneficial than following the advice of II. It is shown that if expert I is more knowledgeable than expert II, then I must hold an assessed distribution which is a convex combination of the real distribution and the one held by expert II.
