Information design against manipulations
In economics, information represents a central factor in forming downstream decisions. This includes strategic players on the receiving end of informative signals as well as strategic agents making decisions upstream of the generation of signals. Also, designed information production systems are sensitive to manipulations by third-party agents. The EU-funded IMEDMC project will improve our understanding of socially or privately optimal information designs, explaining how they form upstream and downstream decisions, how private interests manipulate them, and how this can be anticipated and countered. IMEDMC will analyse the unexplored designer-agent-receiver class of games considering fake news production – state falsification, pure agency and state shifting.
