Ole Jann, Assistant Professor of Economics at CERGE-EI in Prague, will talk about the Economics of Privacy. Some of the world’s largest companies are built on selling their users’ data, and most of us regularly give away personal data in exchange for free or better services. Which economic effects does this have for the individual and for society? Should we leave these transactions to the market or do they need to be regulated? Considering these practical issues leads us to deeper economics questions about the value of information and the effects of information asymmetries.
