Regulating the digital economy: issues and policy responses, 29 June - Thursday 15:00 - 18:00, central London 
 
Dear All,
 
We would like to warmly invite you to the second workshop organised by the CAMRI Policy Observatory on the 29th of June.
 
The expansion of the digital economy has raised contentious issues for regulators and policy-makers. From the taxation of digital companies to the new business models associated with platform capitalism, to artificial intelligence, automation and the accountability of algorithms, regulators and policy-makers now have to contend with a rapidly changing economic environment. This panel discussion will reflect on current developments in the digital economy and their implications for policy. The event will bring together academics, policy-makers, civil society and industry. It will draw on the expertise of the Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI) in the political economy of digital media and particularly on the work of Dr Mercedes Bunz on algorithms and automation, and of Dr Pieter Verdegem on Internet cooperatives. Guest speakers include Paul Morton, Tax Director at the Office of Tax Simplification, who will speak about the differences between digital and traditional economy, the international tax system and related challenges, and Will Hayter, Project Director at the Competition and Markets Authority, who will address the regulation and effectiveness of digital comparison tools.
