Stretching Firm and Brand Reputation

Author

  • Luis Cabral

Abstract

I consider an adverse selection model of firm reputation. Each firm is characterized by an exogenously given quality level, which is the firm's private information and applies to any product it sells. Consumers observe the performance of the firm's products, which is positively related to the firm's quality level.
