About this book

Do you know how banking and money will look like in the new digital age?
This book collects the voices of leading scholars, entrepreneurs, policy makers and consultants who, through their expertise and keen analytical skills, are best positioned to picture from various angles the ongoing technological revolution in banking and finance.
You will learn how lending and borrowing can exist without banks; how new forms of money can compete to better serve different society needs; how new technologies are banking the unbanked communities in the poorest parts of the world, and how ideas and small projects can be financed by the crowds without the need to rely upon banks. You will learn how, in the new digital age, we will interact with new self-organised and autonomous companies that operate without any human involvement, based on a set of programmed and incorruptible rules. You will learn that new business models will emerge thanks to technology-enabled platforms, upon which one can build new forms of non-hierarchical cooperation between strangers. And you will also learn that new forms of risks and threats are emerging that will destabilise our systems and jeopardise the stability of our financial order.

Reviews

“Banking beyond banks and money is a compendium of in-depth articles detailing the individual authors’ make-up of 21st century financial institutions. … The book is definitely meant for a niche audience: those whose whole careers depend on innovations in the banking and financing world.” (James Van Speybroeck, Computing Reviews, January, 2017)
