If, on a market, all the participants do not have access to the same information, this market is characterized by a information asymmetry. Example: in the context of a loan, the borrower is fully informed of her repayment capacity while the lender does not have this information.
Several solutions allow reduce information asymmetry between advertisers and agencies, in an automated way.
- Reconciliation of ad-centric and site-centric data via API or native tool connections.
- Internalization of ad-centric tools in part or in full
Moral hazard and adverse selection are two consequences of these asymmetries. Adverse selection appears in particular on a market when consumers do not have the fullinformation about the quality of the property they want to buy, unlike sellers.
the market is failing in the presence ofinformation asymmetry. VS’is a situation in which two agents carrying out an economic transaction do not have the same level ofinformation on the exchanged product. Moral hazard and adverse selection are two consequences of these asymmetries.
At this price, the owners of good quality models withdraw from the market, the average market price being too low. The symmetry information therefore excludes good quality products from the market in favor of lower quality products. VS’is what is therefore called anti-selection or adverse selection.
Faced with this, sellers withdraw good quality cars from the market and leave only poor quality cars for sale. Thus, information asymmetry causes bad cars to drive good cars out of the market, and the market is inefficient.
Example: in the context of a credit, the borrower is fully informed of his ability to repay while the lender does not have this information. Information asymmetry characterizes the vast majority of markets. Indeed, buyers and sellers rarely have the same information.
In general terms, the skewness of a distribution is positive if the right tail (at high values) is longer or fatter, and negative if the left tail (at low values) is longer or fatter.
Information asymmetries lead to two types of risk, moral hazard and adverse selection. These risks then harm the efficiency of the market.
