Three essays in political economy

Abstract : This thesis aims at studying the role of information and provides three articles examples illustrating the effect of information restrictions. The information set an agent has can be restrained by the availability of news, the bias of the news he has access to and finally by the social experiences the individual has faced. In the first chapter, we look at the effect of a shock in information availability on late XIX and early XXth century trade flows. The second chapter documents the consequences on the agenda setting and bias of newspapers after a private acquisition of the media. The last chapter is an evaluation of the end of the mandatory military service on political participation.
