The section titled the Effect of Information on Market Behavior contains papers by economists. Papers by consumer psychologists are in the second section, the Effect of Information on Consumer Behavior. The third section, Information and Public Policy, contains papers on related public policy issues. A summary and discussion of the issues raised during the conference is presented in the final section.
