Pasquale’s book, The Black Box Society: The Secret Algorithms That Control Money and Information (Harvard University Press, 2015), has been recognized internationally as a landmark study on information asymmetries. It is cited in fields ranging from law to computer science to sociology to literature. The book develops a social theory of reputation, search, and finance, while promoting pragmatic reforms to improve the information economy.
