Verity Winship on Enforcement Networks

Verity Winship, professor of law at the University of Illinois, joins the Business Scholarship Podcast to discuss her new article Enforcement Networks. 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.
