17:30 to 18:30 Rajesh Sundaresan Reputation Based Information Design For Inducing Pro-Social Behaviour

We will discuss an information design problem that uses (1) norms and conventions in a society or network and (2) individuals'; desires to have good reputation (in keeping with these norms and conventions), to increase the quantum of prosocial actions. Agents' actions (electricity consumption, donations to charities, committee time of faculty members, voluntarism, etc.) are often not visible to the public. In our work, a planner who has access to all action levels considers making public the evaluation of a function of each individual's action. We model the notion of a resulting reputational benefit, show how its consideration could improve the quantum of prosocial actions under equilibrium, and raise the question of an optimal information design.

The talk will be based on joint work with Alexandre Reiffers-Masson.
