Tackling Adverse Selection in Secondary PC Markets

Stewart Hickey and Colin Fitzpatrick

Abstract

The work presented in this paper addresses the issue of adverse selection in the secondary PC market and aims to raise consumer confidence with regard to the purchase of second hand personal computer systems. The solution adopts the concept of signalling from economic market theory and utilises existing on-board Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology (SMART) sensors to capture real-time usage data for the provision of a comprehensive signalling dataset on the product.
