What’s Next? Disruptive/Collaborative Economy or Business as Usual?

The next annual meeting of SASE (Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics) dedicates its attention to the digital economy. The internet and web-based technologies enable forms of organizing that are innovative and beneficial for our society, yet, these forms can also be disruptive, challenging and a potential source for (new) inequalities. Elke Schüßler (JKU Linz), Robert Bauer (JKU Linz), Stefan Kirchner (Universität Hamburg) and I are hosting a mini-conference at the conference, where we want to discuss the role of regulation in the context of digital intermediaries  (Regulating Platform Capitalism: The Emerging Role of Digital Intermediaries). For more information see the SASE Homepage.
