Nikita Roketskiy, Assistant Professor, University College London

We study optimal monopoly pricing with evasive consumers. The seller uses consumer data to finetune pricing. However, such third degree price discrimination encourages data-conscious consumers to manipulate their observable attributes (at a cost). This reduces the effectiveness of information, sometimes rendering it useless. For several settings, we derive the monopolist’s optimal investigation strategy, and find that less is more.
