2013 Symposium: The Disclosure Crisis

The Disclosure Crisis

Mandatory disclosure is a popular form of regulation. From privacy to healthcare, politics to “payola,” laws requiring disclosure have proliferated in recent decades. This symposium features panel discussions by top scholars and practitioners on why we love—or love to hate—disclosure, why it seems to never work, and what solutions exist
