Abstract:We study a form of pre-game communication, namely, cheap-talk. The framework first proposed by Farrell (1987) is extended to symmetric games with a finite but otherwise arbitrary number of actions. An alternative theory of cheap-talk pre-game communication is proposed and its effects characterized. Farrell (1987) modelled cheap-talk with players making simultaneous announcements. We study cheap-talk with sequential announcements. The welfare implications of cheap-talk are also discussed.
