They may acquire costly information that enhances their ability to make a correct decision. We focus on the impact of transparency. We show that the principal’s initial utility is higher under transparency, because members exert more effort, which makes correct decisions more likely. The principal also benefits from transparency later, unless transparency leads to an alignment of the signal qualities of highly efficient and less efficient committee members. In general, committee members are harmed by transparency. Together with the insights from the literature, our results may help to decide when transparency in committees is desirable.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>International Journal of Game Theory ; 41 (2012), 2. - S. 427-453</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2013-02-08T08:34:38Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Hahn, Volker</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Gersbach, Hans</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Hahn, Volker</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2013-02-08T08:34:38Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Gersbach, Hans</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Information acquisition and transparency in committees</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
