Ethical Voters and Costly Information Acquisition, Quarterly Journal of Political Science
This project applies the basic ethical game methodology we developed in an earlier paper to the problem of voting in large elections with asymmetric information. We will show that the same basic insights about voting derived in the game-theoretic literature also occur in ethical games with the advantage of a sensible micro-level model of participation in elections.
