i thought it would be a good idea to start up a thread where we can discuss our
approach as we start to move out of of the "compile the Harms list" and into
the "analyze the Harms" phase of our work.
stealing liberally from folks on today's call, here's a starter-list of
dimensions that we could use to document and understand each of the harms on
for each harm on our list:
-- what are examples of the harm having happened (court cases, compliance
activity, sanctions, newspaper accounts, etc.)?
-- who was involved and how did they do it?
-- who was harmed and what was the financial and/or operational impact?
-- how long, and how often, has it happened?
-- who's proposing that it's a harm and why?
-- did this harm happen only in a vertically-integrated environment?
-- to what extent would vertical separation be an effective means to prevent
the harm in the future?
as i said, this is a starter-kit. are there other (similarly broad) questions
we should ask about each harm as we analyze them?
