But no other payoff, and the policy-maker cannot communicate his/her type. Â; r/. Then, discontinuity in 28 M. Gregor Most models of production of evidence impose restrictions on the signal structure, typically parameterized by the number of signals or precision of signals. These restrictions complicate derivation of the lobby’s expected value of the mechanism. The calculation becomes much easier in the extreme case of absence of any restrictions. Kamenica and Gentzkow (2011) show that if the lobby can design a communication mechanism arbitrarily, subject only to Bayes-plausibility, then there exists a communication mechanism that improves the lobby’s expected utility, hence is preferred to the absence of communication, whenever (1) the default policy d0 is not the first-best for the lobby and (2) in the neighborhood around prior 0 , d .

Kalandrakis (2004, 2010) constructs a stationary equilibrium in which in each period, the period’s proposer gets the whole budget for the period; on the other hand, in a model in which the proposer is always the same, the proposer does not get the whole budget in any period (Diermeier and Fong 2011). Penn (2009) finds that in a model with (exogenous) random proposals, the most frequent outcomes approximately split the budget evenly between a minimal winning majority of agents. Returning to the model with strategic proposals, Bowen and Zahran (2012) construct equilibria that distribute the period budget evenly among a supermajority of the players; allowing for waste, Richter (2014) constructs an equilibrium with a fully egalitarian division of the budget in every period.
