CMPF Academic Seminar:
Media Ownership Concentration in Europe and the World, and the Digital Challenge
Eli Noam - Professor of Economics and Finance at the Columbia Business School
Are European media less concentrated than those of other regions of the world? Do internet media overcome media concentration? Do American companies dominate world media? What are the world’s most powerful media companies? What countries have the greatest media diversity? This talk, based on extensive data, will present answers that challenge cherished beliefs.

For three years he served as a Commissioner for Public Services of New York State. He was appointed by the White House to the President’s IT Advisory Committee, and is Director of the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information, a research center focusing on management and policy issues in communications, internet, and media.
