Tampering with Information
Odilon Camara, Visiting Associate in Economics, Caltech; Associate Professor of Finance and Business Economics, USC Marshall School of Business,

Abstract: We study a game between a sender and a receiver, in which the sender can tamper with the information she provides to the receiver (falsify the results of an experiment). The receiver has access to some auditing technology to uncover tampering. We characterize the sender's optimal experiment and the receiver's optimal auditing technology, taking into account how auditing affects the sender's equilibrium choice of information provision and tampering.
