Our model predicts a trade-off between information acquisition and information aggregation. On the one hand, the expected benefit from being informed is larger in case the experts are consulted individually. Hence, the experts either acquire the same or a larger amount of information, depending on the cost of information, than in case of delegation. On the other hand, any acquired information is better aggregated in the case of delegation, in which experts can deliberate secretly. To test the model’s key predictions, we run an experiment. The results from the laboratory confirm the predicted trade-off despite some deviations from theory on the individual level.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>Delegation to a Group</dcterms:title> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2021-04-08T09:21:30Z</dc:date> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2020</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2021-04-08T09:21:30Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Fehrler, Sebastian</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Janas, Moritz</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Fehrler, Sebastian</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
