摘   要:

This paper studies a stylized model of a monopoly data seller when an information-sharing network exists among data buyers. We show that, if the buyers' prior information is sufficiently noisy, the optimal selling strategy is characterized by a maximum independent set, which is the largest set of buyers who have no information-sharing link with each other. In addition, the precision of the seller's data decreases in the connectivity of the buyer network, and it is larger than the socially efficient level of precision. Our result formalizes the intuition that social learning through an information-sharing network may substitute third-party information provided by a monopoly data seller. Furthermore, we discuss the interventions of the seller on the information-sharing network.
