Knowledge of the main issues in information economics; skills in analyzing these issues in economic models.
The course gives an introduction to the field “information economics”, which studies how asymmetry of information (e.g., about the quality of some good) affects markets and organizations. A common theme is that such asymmetry often leads to inefficiency. The course covers the main issues of the field, in particular adverse selection and moral hazard.
The course is based on several textbooks on the microeconomic theory of uncertainty and information.
