Description
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.

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.
