  • "The Tragedy of the (Data) Commons" - Dr. Hendler

    DCEG Seminar

    The tragedy of the commons, first proposed by William Lloyd in 1833, is an economic problem in which every individual has an incentive to consume a resource at the expense of every other individual with no way to exclude anyone from consuming. It results in overconsumption, under investment, and ultimately depletion of the resource.
