Job Market Paper
Abstract:

In this paper, I study a model in which an impatient decision maker (DM) acquires information prior to making her decision. I allow for fully flexible information: the DM can choose any dynamic signal process as an information source, subject to a flow cost on signal informativeness in unit time. I fully characterize the optimal learning dynamics in continuous-time: the DM seeks for an informative signal arriving as a Poisson process. The arrival of signal confirms prior belief and leads to immediate action. Learning has increasing precision and decreasing intensity over time.
