The topic for Thursday's class

We will talk about signaling (the person with the private information taking a costly action to communicate what the information is) and inference (what the uninformed party interprets from the signal).  There will not be a PowerPoint for this.  But if you have read the book Moneyball (or even if you have just seen the movie) that might be good preparation.

I will use this piece in our discussion of inference.  It should be relevant to you.
