The mission of the Program on Economics & Privacy (PEP) is to promote the sound application of economic analysis to issues surrounding the digital information economy through original research, policy outreach, and education. The PEP is dedicated to studying the economic tradeoffs inherent to privacy, data security, and other digital information debates, and to produce relevant and original research and education programs for policymakers.
