Information design

Consider a setting where one agent holds private information and would like to use her information to motivate another agent to take some action. When agents’ interests co-incide the answer is easy – disclose the full information. In this project we study the optimal information design when agents’ incentives are mis-aligned.

Expert testing

A self-proclaimed agent provides probabilistic forecasts over a sequence of events. In this project we ask how can we distinguish between genuine experts and charlatans?
