Professor Verity Winship joined the Business Scholarship Podcast to discuss her new article "Enforcement Networks" (Yale Journal on Regulation). In this article, Winship presents an empirical network analysis of acknowledgments in SEC litigation and press releases. These acknowledgments shed light on how the SEC sources enforcement actions, including through referrals from the FBI, FINRA, and even small-town police departments. In presenting these findings, Winship demonstrates a method that can be extended for reaching deeper understanding of cross-agency interactions.
