Full Text: Cornell economist Sharon Tennyson, an expert on consumer protections and financial regulation, took over as editor of the Journal of Consumer Affairs June 1. The peer-reviewed journal, founded in 1967 by the American Council on Consumer Interests, features research and analysis on the social, legal, economic, and political influences on consumer interests. "We live in an era of heightened awareness and concern about consumer issues, making this an especially exciting time to take over as editor," said Tennyson, associate professor of policy analysis and management. Tennyson's teaching and research focuses on the impact of government laws and regulation on consumers and financial institutions, particularly the workings of insurance markets.
