Brandeis was well represented at the recent “Economics of Digitization: An Agenda” pre-conference in Chicago last week (June 28 and 29, 2012).


In addition to incoming assistant professor Ben Schiller (back row, second from far right), Catherine Mann (in red in the back row) and Igor Karagodsky (Brandeis ’10, PhD candidate at Boston College, and currently with Compass Lexecon, front left) gave an overview of their paper “Information Lost” (to paraphrase Milton’s Paradise Lost), which models the externalities of data breaches and the various approaches to disciplining the market (through loss in stockholder value, fines, and FTC regulations).

The NBER conference was headed up by Shane Greenstein (standing next to me).  The full conference will be next year in May or June.

Submitted by Catherine Mann, Barbara and Richard M. Rosenberg Professor of Global Finance at the International Business School.
