Abstract: We prove an exponential inequality for positively associated and strictly stationary random variables replacing an uniform boundedness assumption by the existence of Laplace transforms. The proof uses a truncation technique together with a block decomposition of the sums to allow an approximation to independence. We show that for geometrically decreasing covariances our conditions are fulfilled, identifying a convergence rate for the strong law of large numbers.
