New CeDEx papers

CeDEx 2016-19: The Enforcement of Mandatory Disclosure Rules (revised version of 2016-04)

Matthias Dahm, Paula González and Nicolás Porteiro show that optimal monitoring of selectively reported information might enforce disclosure rules imperfectly, because it is determined by a trade-off between the reduction in selective reporting and the incentives to invest in information. This implies, for example, that the optimal fine might not be the largest possible fine.
