Richard Miller's book, On the End of Privacy: Dissolving Boundaries in a Screen-Centric World (UPitt, March 2019), focuses on the events leading up to the suicide of Tyler Clementi and the trial that followed, where Clementi’s roommate was charged with a series of hate crimes for having used his webcam to spy on Clementi kissing another man. With access to the text messages, tweets, and chatroom posts of those directly involved in this tragedy, Miller asks: why did no one intervene to stop the spying?

Bert W. Wasserman Workshop in Law and Finance: "Supranational Supervision" with Prof. Dr. Rainer Haselmann

  • 12:00PM to 1:30PM
  • *Room Change* SLB Room 111

Exploiting the establishment of a new supranational regulator responsible for banks larger than EUR 30 billion in assets in Europe (the Single Supervisory Mechanism SSM), we investigate how separation of regulation impacts regulatory outcomes as well as risk shifting activities among banks under the different regulators.
