Careers in Economics Webinar Series 2021-22

Over the past few years we have found that students from Warwick’s Economics Department have highly valued the opportunity to meet with employers and former students of the Department to explore the range of economics related careers.

For the 2021-22 academic year, we will be hosting a new series of webinars covering a range of topics. We hope that you take this opportunity to learn about further studies at Warwick, the skills that employers value in economics graduates and find out more about how to apply for the positions that they offer in their companies.

Please note that these events are for current students only. We will send you MS Teams joining details via email.

Title of paper: Information Acquisition and the Timing of Actions

This paper develops a dynamic model of information acquisition, in which the decision maker lacks control over the timing of their action. It characterizes the optimal dynamic experiment when the decision maker can flexibly choose all relevant aspects of the information they acquire. The cost of an experiment depends on the quantity of information it produces. At the optimum, the decision maker concentrates resources in generating a single piece of breakthrough news, contradicting their plan of action. In the absence of such news, the decision maker becomes more confident in their intentions. This leads them to sacrifice the frequency with which breakthroughs arrive in order to increase their impact on choice behaviour. These are in stark contrast with the case where the timing of actions is endogenous, in which breakthroughs confirm beliefs, and the resolution of the trade-off between frequency and precision is reversed.

Time to be confirmed.
