Over recent decades the digital economy has expanded at an ever-increasing rate, both in developed and emerging markets. New digital paradigms encompass a vast array of enabling technologies, including the Internet of Things, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cloud Computing, and Smart Manufacturing. Finance and accounting systems and techniques, as well as corporate governance and government regulation are undergoing dramatic automation and AI enhancement driven by FinTech and RegTech innovations.
Meanwhile, novel business models driven by digital technology have been emerging in the digital economy era. For example, the platform economy, supported by algorithms, big data, and cloud-based computing power is replacing the traditional development model where companies are the primary unit. The change from the traditional to the digital economy brings golden opportunities for transformation and upgrading of the finance, accounting, and corporate governance professions.
This special issue conference will cover Innovative Research in Finance, Accounting and Corporate Governance in the Transition towards the Digital Economy.
Introduction to Economics & Politics
Economics & Politics is a well-established international journal that “focuses on analytical political economy, broadly defined as the study of economic and political phenomena and policy in models that include political processes, institutions and markets. The journal is the source for innovative theoretical and empirical work on the intersection of politics and economics, at both domestic and international levels, and aims to promote new approaches on how these forces interact to affect political outcomes and policy choices, economic performance and societal welfare”.Please see https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/14680343
