Communication with Forgetful Liars



I consider cheap talk environments in which the informed party sends twice a message about the state and does not remember which message was previously sent in case of lie. I characterize the equilibria with forgetful liars in such settings assuming that the expectation about the past message after a lie coincides with the aggregate distribution of lies over all possible realizations of the states. The approach provides a simple rationale as to why multi-rounds of communication may be helpful at disciplining the informed party to tell the truth and why inconsistency may be harmful.
