There are times when [data] erasure is the right thing, and there are times when it is inappropriate. - Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google

Professor Nouriel Roubini moderated a conversation with Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google, and Jared Cohen, director of Google Ideas, on their new book, The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business. Following the discussion, Schmidt and Cohen answered questions from MBA students and press in the audience.

"This lack of a delete button on the Internet is in fact a significant issue," said Schmidt. "There are times when [data] erasure is the right thing, and there are times when it is inappropriate. How do we decide? We have to have that debate now."
