Abstract: Given the dramatic rise in the mechanisms through which governments, private industry, and other interests can access, gather, analyze, and employ information on citizens, we offer a theory of coevolving disruptions in the technological, business, and policy spheres. We then consider competing conceptions of privacy in a world of ever-evolving norms; we also assay public opinion on matters of surveillance and privacy focusing on points of consensus and conflict. We find that public opinion on privacy matters is a more complex phenomenon than most regulation scholars may assume. Finally, we consider theoretical guideposts for policy actors in their attempt to reconcile public demands for privacy with competing interests.
