Topic

Persuading an Informed Committee

Abstract

 
A biased sender tries to persuade a committee to vote for a proposal by providing public information about its quality. Each voter has some private information about the proposal’s quality. We characterize the sender-optimal disclosure policy under unanimity rule when the sender can versus cannot ask voters for a report about their private information. The sender can only profit from asking agents about their private signals when the private information is sufficiently accurate. For all smaller accuracy levels, a sender who cannot elicit the private information is equally well off.
