Abstract

We examine the various interpretations that legal scholars and economists have offered of insider trading since the 1950s. Fueled by the active role of the Securities and Exchange Commission, judges have had to make sense of a paragraph-long rule, promulgated in 1942. Since then, insider trading has been the battleground of fierce battles between judges and economists. Using novel scientometric methods, we document that battleground.

 

Open to all. No registration required.

Part of the Science, Technology and Bio-Social Studies Forum (STBS) seminar series.
