Coordinated investing with feedback and learning
AbstractInvestors select how to distrubute funds between a number of projects. This paper departs from the standard financial market model by endogenizing the intrinsic value of the assets to be dependend upon the amount of funding they attract. Investment strategies based on fundamental and a momentum strategy are compared. Both strategies produce herding characteristics. For the fundamental strategy herding is optimal. The momentum strategy can result in suboptimal economic development, but can also produces greater success for the individual investors utilizing it.
