The Ethical & Behavioral Issues of Pricing with Prof. David Austen-Smith

Do you ever miss the great case study discussions you used to have in class? Do you sometimes find yourself wishing that you could talk through knotty problems with others the way you did at Kellogg? Well, now you can do so again – and here’s the thing – you won’t have to read a 40 page case study!


Professor David Austen-Smith, the Peter G. Peterson Professor of Corporate Ethics has graciously agreed use a new format for a KACC event to discuss the ethics of pricing. Using fact situations from recent controversial pricing decisions ranging from Turing Pharmaceuticals dramatic price increases to Amazon’s charging different prices for the same product, Professor Austin-Smith will use several mini case studies to help audience members explore the impact of pricing and price discrimination on customers and the public.
