Price Signals Quality. The Case of One-Sided Asymmetric Information

Tore Ellingsen ()

Abstract: The paper considers the pricing decision by a seller who has private information about quality. It is shown that, contrary to widespread belief, high quality products may be sold with positive probability even when buyers have no private information. The separating equilibria have a very simple structure.
