While passing generates an immediate payoff according\r\nto the value of information, the player can also get an additional reward if he is the last\r\nplayer to pass. Facing this problem while discounting over time determines the playerâ€™s\r\nbehavior. Once a successor has collected all information from his workers he starts to play\r\nthe same game with his successor.

\r\nWe state conditions for different Subgame Perfect Nash Equilibria and analyse the time it\r\ntakes each hierarchy to centralize the information. This allows us to compare different structures\r\nand state which structure centralizes fastest depending on the information distribution\r\nand other parameters. We show that the time the centralization takes is mostly affected by\r\nthe least informed players.","lang":"eng"}],"locked":"1","file":[{"file_size":"372322","access_level":"open_access","file_id":"2909143","success":"1","date_updated":"2017-03-14T08:27:22Z","creator":"weingarten","date_created":"2017-03-14T08:21:47Z","content_type":"application/x-download","file_name":"IMW_working_paper_570.pdf","open_access":"1","relation":"main_file"}],"department":[{"_id":"10053"}],"publication_identifier":{"issn":["0931-6558"]},"first_author":"Schopohl, Simon","edit_mode":"expert","citation":{"mla":"Schopohl, Simon. *Information transmission in hierarchies*.
