Tuesday, October 2: “The Privacy Market: Privacy in the Age of Big Data”
Co-organized with the NYU Journal of Law & Business
Lipton Hall & Faculty Club (108 W. 3rd St.), 11:00am – 4:00pm

This two-panel conference will focus on data privacy issues in the marketplace, with a particular focus on the tension between the consumer’s right to privacy and the benefits provided by big data to both consumers and businesses. With today’s technology, corporations are constantly accessing data about their consumers—big businesses are buying data from third parties and apps are continually collecting information from users. This data allows companies to provide their customers with more targeted advertisements, information, services, and products. Such practices, while providing benefits to both consumers and the marketplace at large, raise critical questions about the individual’s right to privacy. We will explore the trade-offs between such data collection to encourage business growth and the consumer’s expectation of privacy.

CLE credit is pending. Please RSVP here: https://nyu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_dgaCWzKWCNULkcl

The lecture will be published in the NYU Journal of Law & Liberty
Greenberg Lounge, Vanderbilt Hall (40 Washington Square South), 6:00 – 8:00pm 

In taking Friedrich A. von Hayek’s name, the lecture series both pays homage to an important intellectual figure and signals its desire to emulate Hayek’s dedication to critical examination of the nature of law, the proper role of government in society, and the best avenues by which to explore and expand individual liberty. This year’s lecture will be delivered by Deirdre N. McCloskey (Distinguished Professor Emerita of Economics, History, English, and Communication at the University of Illinois at Chicago).
