The Meaning of Abstention
Previous studies of information collection, aggregation and reporting have either omitted the possibility of abstention or thought of as a modifier of the decision quality. In this paper I present abstention in the framework of reputation maximization by constructing, solving and analyzing the model with an agent that receives two signals and is prompted to report them. I find and sort out different equilibria that appear in the model and analyze them on specific examples. I conclude my research by showing the significance of abstention as a phenomena that positively influences the information aggregation process.
