In June, the Searle Center at Northwestern University sponsored a Research Symposium on the Economics and Law of Internet Search. TAP interviewed several academics about their recent research and thoughts on internet search. They were asked to discuss why the average person should care about internet search; the relationship between online search advertising and individual ID and privacy; the essential elements of their research on search that policymakers should keep in mind; and the basics of the search market structure and economic implications.

Here are three of the interviews:

  • Shane Greenstein, Professor of Management and Strategy with the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. Watch his interview.
