Full Summary: CISTP's Innovation, Globalization & Development Lecture Series presents, "The Surveillance Economy: Why Information Does not always do what Economic Theory Predicts" with Dr. Ken Lipartito.

CISTP's Innovation, Globalization & Development Lecture Series presents, "The Surveillance Economy: Why Information Does not always do what Economic Theory Predicts". Co-sponsored by The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, and the College of Management.

**Please RSVP for this event.

Professor Lipartito's areas of specialization are economic and business history and the history of technology. Most of his research has been on the United States over the past century, although he also engages in comparative work on Europe and maintains a strong interest in the Atlantic world. By combining an understanding of the material dimensions of history - markets, businesses, technological systems - with an appreciation of their cultural and political ramifications, he challenges students to develop their own understanding of the evolution of modern society. He brings this multifaceted approach to his publications as well as to the classroom, where he regularly covers business history, the history of the global economy, political economy, the history of technology, as well as Atlantic civilization and twentieth century America.
