New Policies Enabled by Programmable Central Bank Digital Currencies

鑑於金融技術的進步和全球各大經濟體逐步邁向數碼化轉型,我們預期在可見的未來,央行將由發行實體現金轉向發行數碼貨幣,並將其普及化。事實上,在近幾十年的批發性支付系統內,銀行接受央行數碼貨幣的情況已屢見不鮮。謝國生博士與何敏淙先生在2021年9月29日的〈龍虎山下〉專欄中撰文解釋了央行數碼貨幣(CBDC)的發展已經蓄勢待發,讀者可前往參考這篇富啟發性的文章。

Trust Building in Credence Goods Markets

We study trust building in credence-goods markets in a dynamic setting. When consumers' expected loss is low and it is efficient to fix only the more severe problem, there is no trade in the one-shot game. In the repeated game, an expert's honesty is monitored through consumers' rejection of his recommendations. The expert's profit in the optimal equilibrium weakly increases in the discount factor but does not achieve the first best, which contrasts sharply with the optimal equilibrium in experience-goods markets. The optimal equilibrium involves undertreatment if the expert is sufficiently patient, and overtreatment if he is moderately patient.
