"On Experimentation and Real Options in Financial Regulation," with Matthew Spitzer, Northwestern University School of Law, Fri, Apr 4, 2014 3:40 pm - 5:00 pm, 368A Heady Hall.
Matthew Spitzer is the director of the Searle Center on Law, Regulation and Economic Growth at Northwestern University School of Law and also Howard and Elizabeth Chapman Professor of Law. Prior to joining Northwestern he held professorships at the University of Texas, University of Southern California, and California Institute of Technology. From 2000 to 2006 Spitzer was the Dean of Law at USC. His fields of study have been telecommunications regulation, administrative law, experimental law and economics, judicial politics, and, more recently, patent law. He has published more than 40 articles and three books in these fields, and continues to work in all of them. In spite of being one of a handful of law professors who can describe reasonably clearly the ideas behind Pulse Code Modulation that enable digitization of music on CDs (and MP3s), Spitzer has over 1,200 vinyl albums and still plays them on a turntable.
