Choosing among Signalling Equilibria in Lobbying Games

1997, Public Choice

Eric Bennett Rasmusen


Abstract. Randolph Sloof has written a comment on the lobbying-as-signalling model in Rasmusen (1993) in which he points out an equilibrium I missed and criticizes my emphasis on a particular separating equilibrium (see this issue). In this response, I discuss howto interpret multiple equilibria in games and how to interpret mixed strategy equilibria in which two typesof player with identical incentives must pick different mixing probabilities.
