Does the internet promote fairness of income distribution? | Economic Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it

(Phys.org) —The question of how an economic system should be structured in order to best promote fairness and equality is one of the most debated subjects of all time. By approaching the complexities of this question from the field of network science, researchers from MIT and other institutions have found that the average degree to which individuals in a society are connected to each other can crucially affect the fairness of income distribution.

The objective of this project is to explore and describe the future of workplaces in Britain, during a decade when the concept of ‘workplace care’ is changing and employers need to future-proof benefit packages to attract and retain talent. We have investigated the social, cultural, economic and technological forces shaping ‘workplace care’ in Britain; new and emerging trends; and the future of workplaces and employee care, looking towards 2030. This report contains four macro trends which describe the future of workplace care over the coming decades. The report also contains five analyses of how the trends resonate with employees in the accountancy, legal, technology, retail, media and advertising business sectors.

Complexity theory and financial regulation

Traditional economic theory could not explain, much less predict, the near collapse of the financial system and its long-lasting effects on the global economy. Since the 2008 crisis, there has been increasing interest in using ideas from complexity theory to make sense of economic and financial markets. Concepts, such as tipping points, networks, contagion, feedback, and resilience have entered the financial and regulatory lexicon, but actual use of complexity models and results remains at an early stage. Recent insights and techniques offer potential for better monitoring and management of highly interconnected economic and financial systems and, thus, may help anticipate and manage future crises.

Which Way for the Gig Economy?

Which Way for the Gig Economy? | Economic Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
The so-called “sharing economy” is sometimes also called the “gig economy” — arguably a more accurate term, because “sharing economy” carries overtones of cooperation and mutuality that are (to say the least) grossly misleading. In the case of ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft it’s misleading because it suggests the direct sharing of rides between...

Who controls the world? | Economic Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
James Glattfelder studies complexity: how an interconnected system -- say, a swarm of birds -- is more than the sum of its parts. And complexity theory, it turns out, can reveal a lot about how the economy works. Glattfelder shares a groundbreaking study of how control flows through the global economy, and how concentration of power in the hands of a shockingly small number leaves us all vulnerable. (Filmed at TEDxZurich.)
