April 2020 - October 2023

We study how the process of information generation, transmission and revelation affect firms’ performance and workers’ careers. In a first set of papers we will consider how this process is shaped by the structure of connections between firms, between firms and banks, and between firms and politicians. In a second part of the project we will consider how imperfect information about workers skills affect talent allocation and therefore careers in skill intensive jobs. Finally, we will study how social interactions and information transmission, both during the “coming-of-age” period and on the workplace, can shape workers’ careers, focusing in particular on how and to what extent such interactions can contribute to explain the gender gap in compensation.
