Jean Tirole, Nobel Prize Winner 2014 in Economic Sciences, presented his work on Repeated Relationships with Positive Selection during the Spring Meeting of Young Economists 2015, an international conference for young non-tenured researchers in economics. This year’s edition was organized by the faculty of Economics and Business Administration (Ghent University). Title of the lecture: Moving Up a Demand Curve: Repeated Relationships with Positive Selection Abstract: In a number of interesting environments, dynamic screening involves positive selection: in contrast with Coasian dynamics, only the most motivated remain over time. This work provides conditions under which the principal’s commitment solution is time consistent and uses this result to derive testable predictions under permanent or transient shocks. It also identifies environments in which time consistency does not hold despite positive selection, and yet simple equilibrium characterizations can be obtained.
