Confidence intervals, significance values, maximum likelihood estimates, etc. sharpened into Occam's razors

Abstract : Confidence sets, p values, and maximum likelihood estimates may be adjusted to favor sampling distributions that are simple compared to others in the parametric family. The adjustments are derived from a prior likelihood function previously used to adjust posterior distributions.
