About this book

This book provides a coherent Blockchain framework for the business community, governments, and universities structured around microeconomics, macroeconomics, finance, and political economy and identifies how business organizations, financial markets and governmental policies are changed by digitalization, specifically Blockchain. This framework, what they authors call “disintermediation economics,” affects everything by providing a paradigm that transforms the way we organize markets and value chains, financial services, central banking, budgetary policies, innovation ecosystems, government services, and civil society. Bringing together leading and experienced policy makers, corporate practitioners, and academics from top universities, this book offers a road map of best practices that can be immediately useful to firms, policy makers as well as academics by balancing theory with practice.

Reviews

“This critical work arrives at a time when the potential of blockchain is widely recognized. Rather than viewing blockchain strictly as a technology, the authors view it as a philosophy. Disintermediation economics stands poised to transform business, government, and the field of economics. By providing concrete examples of best practices, this work will help make that transformation a reality."

Sheila Warren, Head of Data, Blockchain and Digital Assets, World Economic Forum

“Almost everything we know is changing. Accelerated digitization has created the perfect environment for innovators to leverage blockchain technologies and challenge how almost everything works fundamentally. Disintermediation Economics is a framework for anyone seeking to understand and navigate the profound implications of blockchain technologies in these unprecedented times.”

Marc Taverner, Executive Director, International Association of Trusted Blockchain Applications

 

“This publication co-edited by Eva Kailli and Dimitrios Psarrakis provides excellent in depth and practical thought leadership, harnessing their wealth of experience, expertise and academic knowledge of the subject matter.”

Albert Isola, Minister of Finance and Financial Services, HM Government of Gibraltar
