Regulating Market Innovation
   
Nicholas Occhiuto is a doctoral candidate in sociology at Yale University. Nicholas is the recipient of a 2017 YCSF summer graduate fellowship that has funded his work in the Bay Area.

Nicholas Occhiuto is a doctoral candidate in sociology at Yale University. He is a Graduate Policy Fellow at the Institution for Social and Policy Studies. His research interests include economic sociology, sociology of markets, organizations, occupations, and work.

His dissertation is a comparative ethnographic study that examines the impact of smartphone applications (i.e. Uber, Lyft, Flywheel, Ride Austin etc.) on the taxicab markets in New York, Chicago, San Fransisco, and Austin in order to understand how innovations affect markets.

For this talk, he will be focusing on why there was a shift in regulatory policy (i.e., from taxicab medallions, to unlimited market entry) in these cities. In particular, he will explore the effect that the novel action of connecting drivers and passengers vis-a-vis smartphone applications had on these policies.
