Harry Di Pei (Northwestern University) – Reputation Building with Endogenous Speed of Learning
Abstract: “I study reputation models where each short-run player observes a (possibly stochastic) bounded subset of the long-run player’s previous period  actions, in addition to the entire history of her predecessors’ actions. Reputation effects fail because the speed of learning decreases endogenously with the long-run player’s patience. When each short-run player can also observe an informative signal about the long-run player’s current period action, I propose a resistent to learning condition under which reputation effects fail. This is because the short-run player’s action can be uninformative about the long-run player’s type in periods where the latter receives a low stage-game payoff. When the environment is not resistent to learning, the patient long-run player can secure his  commitment payoff in all equilibria. I explain the differences between my resistent to learning condition and the bounded informativeness condition in  observational learning models.”
