“The Social Value of Information with an Endogenous Public Signal”, Economic Theory (2018), 66(4), 1059-1087. DOI: 10.1007/s00199-017-1081-9.
The paper analyses the equilibrium and welfare properties of an economy characterised by uncertainty and payoff externalities in a general model which nests several applications. In relation to when public information is exogenous, the paper finds that the sign of the social value of private information may be overturned with endogenous public information.

Book chapter which reviews Reinhard Selten’s School of Thought on economic behaviour from the perspectives of economic theory and experimentation.
