Risk Factors Disclosure and the COVID Pandemic: This paper presents the results of a study of risk factors disclosure relating to COVID-19. We use machine learning techniques to identify these disclosures in SEC filings for the Russell 3000, creating a COVID risk factor corpus.
Law, Philosophy, and Social Theory Colloquium | Lily Hu
Lily Hu is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Yale University, working in philosophy of (social) science and political and social philosophy. Her current project broadly concerns causal theorizing about the social world, with a particular focus on causal inference methodologies in the social sciences, how these various statistical frameworks treat and measure the “causal effect” of social categories such as race, and ultimately, how such methods are seen to back normative claims about racial discrimination and inequalities broadly.
