This is a brief review of the law & economics literature on information privacy.
The law and economics literature on information privacy revolves around two dialogues, one normative and one empirical. To a large extent, these dialogues have remained separate. The normative dialogue asks whether privacy is worth protecting, to what extent, and how. The empirical dialogue focuses on better understanding consumer behavior regarding their privacy through experimental methods.
