When capitalism wants to data mine you | FT Alphaville

Interesting point in an FT article today: If Big Data is seen by companies and investors as an asset, one reflected in valuations, regulations on its use, like the one in Europe kicking in next year, could have a big bottom-line impact on company financials and share prices. Alphaville does a read-across from oil – if the government were to regulate it more dramatically, what would happen, etc. Not an entirely airtight argument, but a conversation starter.
