Government and economics in the digital economy


  • Spence, Michael


The digital economy brings both opportunities and challenges. After introducing the benefits and potential problems brought about by the digital economy, I then discuss the important role of government in ensuring that the digital economy functions properly. Finally, I propose several directions in which governments should concentrate their efforts to facilitate the sound development of the digital economy.
