ABSTRACT
Privacy decisions often involve balancing competing interests. As such, they're a natural field of study for economics. But traditional economic models have made overly restrictive assumptions about the stability and nature of individual privacy preferences. Approaches drawing on existing research in behavioral economics and psychology can offer complementary tools for understanding privacy decision making.
