    In the words of David Friedman, "A market failure is a situation where individual rationality does not lead to group rationality. If each individual makes the right decision, the group makes the wrong decision. In the pure case, every individual ends up worse off than if each of them had made a different decision." Professor Friedman argues market failures are not limited to just the free market, and provides a case for and against government intervention using this market failure analysis. Please join us for a discussion with Professor Friedman, Professor Emeritus at Santa Clara Law, and Duke Law's own Professor Barak Richman.

    Recommendation systems-such as the algorithms powering Netflix, suggesting jobs to apply for, and curating Facebook feeds-are powerful tools that can help users navigate an overwhelming array of choices. However, these systems can have negative side effects if left unchecked. In this vLE, we will introduce you to a few popular recommendation-system algorithms, how they work, and discuss how their use may promote homogenization and polarization among target audiences. These effects, while lucrative to service providers, can have negative social consequences.

    This session is part of the Duke+DataScience (+DS) program virtual learning experiences (vLEs). To learn more, please visit https://plus.datascience.duke.edu

In her article, Professor Eichensehr argues that when Congress passes a bill or resolution by a majority of both houses and the President exercises the veto, preventing the act from becoming law, then the expressed congressional opposition to the President's view should be used to narrowly construe the underlying statutory or constitutional authority the President is claiming if that authority is ambiguous.
