Enriching Information to Prevent Bank Runs
AbstractSequential service in the banking sector, as modeled by Diamondand Dybvig (1983), is a barrier to full insurance and potential source offinancial fragility against which deposit insurance is infeasible (Wallace,1988). In this paper, we pursue a different perspective, viewingthe sequence of contacts as opportunities to extract informationthrough a larger message space with commitment to richer promises.As we show, if preferences satisfy a separating property then the desiredelimination of dominated strategies (Green and Lin, 2003) occurseven when shocks are correlated. In this manner the sequential servicepromotes stability.
