Microeconomic Theory Workshop: Joel Sobel

Joel Sobel, University of California, San Diego

On the Relationship Between Damage and Deception

Abstract:   This paper introduces a family of definitions of deceptive behavior. The definitions provide different ways to describe the notion that deceptive behavior misleads a player by inducing inaccurate beliefs.  For each definition of deception, I   identify a class of preferences under which behavior is deceptive   if and only if it harms any player with preferences in the class.

Please note: This is a draft of the paper.
