The Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Economics has announced the agenda and panelists for its Economic Conference on Marketing and Consumer Protection in Washington, D.C., on September 16, co-sponsored by the INFORMS Society of Marketing Science.

Ginger Jin, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Economics, will give opening remarks at the event, which will help marketing scholars learn about the FTC’s consumer protection work, promote potentially high-impact research in consumer protection and regulation, and introduce FTC economists to some of the cutting-edge research being conducted by marketing scholars.

The goal of the conference is to promote an intellectual dialogue between marketing scholars and FTC economists. Specifically, the conference will serve as a vehicle for marketing scholars to learn about the FTC’s practice in consumer protection, promoting potentially high-impact research in the area of consumer protection and regulation, and introducing FTC economists to some of the cutting-edge research being conducted by marketing scholars.

  • K. Sudhir, Editor-in-Chief, Marketing Science and Professor of Marketing, Yale School of Management;
