Economics Seminar

We design four simple cheap-talk games that experimentally investigate the refinement concept of "neologism-proofness." All four games admit fully revealing equilibrium, but whether the equilibrium is neologism-proof varies across the games. We find that neologism played an evident role in how subjects played the games. Overall, fully revealing equilibria that are robust in the sense of being neologism-proof were played more often. Senders and receivers were, however, a ected di erently by neologism. The mere existence of meaningful neologism, even though non-credible, attracted deviating behavior on the senders' part. Receivers' behavior, on the other hand, was a ected by whether the neologism was credible or not, with credibleneologism attracting more deviating behavior from separating strategies.

Economics Seminar

A Possibility Theorem on Information Aggregation in Elections Sourav Bhattacharya, University of Pittsburgh

We provide a simple condition that is both necessary and sufficient for aggregation of private information in large elections where all voters have the same preference. In some states of the world, all voters prefer A; and in other states, all voters prefer B. Each voter draws a private signal independently from a distribution conditional on the state. According to our condition, there should be a hyperplane in the simplex over signals that separates the conditional distributions in states where A is preferred from those in states where B is preferred. If this condition is satisfied, information is aggregated in an equilibrium sequence: even under incomplete information, the preferred outcome obtains almost surely in each state. If the hyperplane condition is violated, there exists no feasible strategy profile that aggregates information. Therefore, information aggregation holds only for special environments.
