报告简介

This paper shows how an informed politician can manipulate uninformed, yet rational, citizens in a multi-period sender-receiver game. By examining the payoff structure, the citizens find out that the politician has an incentive to be honest. Hence, they never doubt him and make their decision according to his messages. However, the information structure restricts the citizens’ ability to detect his misleading them, and so they cannot punish him properly. Therefore, under this game structure, the politician can mislead them without having significant disadvantages, and hence will manipulate their decision in his favor.
