The Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Economics hosted a one-day symposium on the economics of consumer protection, in conjunction with Economic Inquiry’s special Symposium Issue on Consumer Protection Economics. The goal of the conference was to advance the application of economics to consumer protection policy analysis and law enforcement, and in the process further the FTC’s dual mission to protect consumers and promote competition. The event also celebrated the 40th anniversary of the 1978 founding of the Division of Consumer Protection within the Bureau of Economics.
