The University of Chicago selected Professor Omri Ben-Shahar this year's annual Ronald H. Coase lecture for first year law students, and the theme of his talk was "The Myths of Consumer Protection Law" -- the myths in question being that consumers are necessarily better off with more information, that they need broad and wide-ranging rights to sue, and that they should be accorded enhanced damages when they do sue.
