Presentation: Communication, Search and Mobile Phones

Information is costly and can lead to inefficient market outcomes, especially in remote rural areas. Mobile phones have reduced the costs of searching for information and improving market efficiency, however how these gains are distributed is poorly understood. Why?

This presentation is based on the AMA Innovation Lab projects for the BASIS AMA CRSP/I4 Index Insurance Innovation Initiative Technical Committee Meeting. This event was a gathering of researchers and stakeholders involved with the Index Insurance Innovation Initiative (I4) at UC Davis.

This presentation took place at George Washington University, United States on November 6, 2014.
