Public Lecture: The Other Side of the (e-Commerce) Fence<br/><br/>

Monday, December 4, 2000 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Robert Weber (Northwestern University)
Economic markets occasionally fail to work as intended. Sometimes the problem is less-than-rational behavior on the part of market participants. At other times participants, individually or collectively, are more rational than the market organizers anticipate, and, legally or otherwise, find ways to subvert a market to their own ends. Those seeking to build e-commerce marketplaces must take care to look at their systems through the eyes of those who will be players in the market.

Free and open to the public.
