Harvard Law professor and prolific author Cass R. Sunstein has the experience to address information disclosure and its impact, having helped oversee federal regulations in the Obama administration. Policy makers insist citizens are entitled to information, but Sunstein argues that a policy’s impact on human welfare can outweigh the right to know. Unpacking a stunningly complex query with few definitive answers, he explores Facebook’s value, honesty in imparting medical knowledge and other thorny issues. He provides thoughtful, measured and informed insights and observations. Sunstein presents all sides of the information disclosure issue and then leaves you to draw your own conclusions.
