Question

In the world of French high cuisine, a three-star rating from the Michelin Red Guide is a widely accepted indicator of gastronomic excellence.

a. Why are guides’ ratings important to restaurant owners and chefs? Discuss the effect of a restaurant’s rating on the demand for the restaurant.
b. Why do advertising and free meals taint the credibility of Gault Milleau? Discuss the moral hazard problem of Gault Milleau’s ratings.
c. If advertising and free meals taint the credibility of Gault Milleau, why does the guide accept advertising and free meals?
