Theory and Decision 88 (2):315-322 (2020)

Local proper scoring rules provide convenient tools for measuring subjective probabilities. Savage, 783–801, 1971) has shown that the only local proper scoring rule for more than two exclusive events is the logarithmic family. We generalize Savage by relaxing the properness and the domain, and provide simpler proof.
