[vrbgaeeo] Failure to communicate well

Person A tells not the truth but the words strategically chosen most likely to achieve his or her goals.  Person B, listening, game theoretically assumes everyone communicates this way, so does not trust Person A's words.

No one assumes good faith; entire communication breaks down; communicating truth plainly becomes impossible.  Examine if, when, and where this is occurring.

Game theoretically, we would expect signaling mechanisms for imperfect information.
