As a leader in the economics space, Keystone’s Fraser Thompson was selected to moderate a panel hosted by the NABE Tech Economics Roundtable addressing the question, “How Should Economists Think About Data Privacy?”
On April 19, 2022, Thompson was joined by panelists and Professors Rossella Argenziano (Professor of Economics at the University of Essesx), L. Jean Camp (Professor of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University), and Liad Wagman (Professor of Economics at Illinois Institute of Technology). As an Economist at Keystone, and Co-Chair of the NABE Tech Economics Roundtable, Fraser’s work sits at the intersection of business, technology, and economics.
Companies, governments, and individuals increasingly rely on data to make important decisions. During the virtual event, the experts dove into the topic of Data Privacy, its challenges, and its tradeoffs. Data can fuel innovation, but can also prompt critical questions: how should we tradeoff between the value of data and protecting individuals’ privacy; should individuals own and have the right to sell their data?
