Abstract [en]

Lemon markets occur in situations when prior to purchase buyers are unable to observe the product and sellers consequently skim on quality. This phenomenon is potentially exacerbated when buyers and sellers trade in electronically mediated environments, where the product quality often cannot be assessed in advance of purchase. While economists explain the use of brands by firms in terms of monopolistic competition, marketers justify brands for performing various important value added functions. We describe a classroom exercise that tests whether the brand can serve as an effective signal of quality where asymmetric information prevails. Based on past experiments and games in economics it proposes a design for an online simulated posted-offer market institution to identify a lemons market.
