On the signal realization set in contracting with information disclosure

Stefan Terstiege

Economics Letters, 2018, vol. 163, issue C, 83-86

Abstract: I consider contracting with information disclosure in the sense of Bayesian persuasion. A result by Kamenica and Gentzkow (2011) implies that if the principal contracts with a single, uninformed agent, the signal realization set can be restricted to the type set. I show that, otherwise, having additional signal realizations can be advantageous.
