A sender\naims to keep two parties engaged in a war of attrition and r eveals\ninformation about their relative strength. In the unique Markov\nP erfect Equilibrium\, the sender employs “shifting rhetoric”: she\nalte rnates pipetting good and bad news about each party\, so that\nneither app ears too strong. Information designed to induce one party\nto continue fig hting weakens the other party’s incentives. This\nspillover effect may l ead to early resolution and leave the sender\nworse off. With commitment\, the sender provides delayed noisy\ndisclosures. A partisan sender\, who f avors one party\, instead provides\ninformation which leads to immediate r esolution.\n DTSTART:20221111T190000Z DTEND:20221111T203000Z LOCATION:Gerri C.
