FinTech and RegTech in a Nutshell, and the Future in a Sandbox (Research Foundation Briefs)

by Douglas W. Arner and Jànos Barberis

The 2008 global financial crisis represented a pivotal moment that separated prior phases of the development of financial technology (FinTech) and regulatory technology (RegTech) from the current paradigm. Today, FinTech has entered a phase of rapid development marked by the proliferation of startups and other new entrants, such as IT and ecommerce firms that have fragmented the financial services market. This new era presents fresh challenges for regulators and highlights why the evolution of FinTech necessitates a parallel development of RegTech. In particular, regulators must develop a robust new framework that promotes innovation and market confidence, aided by the use of regulatory "sandboxes." Certain RegTech developments today are highlighting the path toward another paradigm shift,...

The Social Life of Economic Inequalities in Contemporary Latin America : Decades of Change (Approaches to Social Inequality and Difference)

by Margit Ystanes and Iselin Åsedotter Strønen

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This edited volume examines how economic processes have worked upon social lives and social realities in Latin America during the past decades. Through tracing the effects of the neoliberal epoch into the era of the so-called pink tide, the book seeks to understand to what extent the turn to the left at the start of the millennium managed to challenge historically constituted configurations of inequality. A central argument in the book is that in spite of economic reforms and social advances on a range of arenas, the fundamental tenants of socio-economic inequalities have not been challenged substantially. As several countries are now experiencing a return to right-wing politics, this collection helps us better understand why inequalities ...

If Scotland Goes

by Financial Times

The FT’s latest ebook is a guide to what would happen if Scotland were to vote for independence in a referendum in September 2014. While the outcome is far from certain, a yes vote would have a profound effect not only on the 5.3m people of Scotland, but also on the economic future and fundamental character of the UK. We introduce Alex Salmond, the Scottish first minister and driving force behind the independence campaign. We examine the difficult economic issues, led by an independent Scotland’s choice of currency, and the potential benefits independence would bring for example in a separate immigration policy. We include observations from an expatriate Scot that give a flavour of the personal and social backdrop to the constitutional choice. This collection of articles - a mixture of...

Trailblazing in Entrepreneurship: Creating New Paths for Understanding the Field

by Dean A. Shepherd and Holger Patzelt

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.In this book, the authors present a challenge for future research to build a stronger, more complete understanding of entrepreneurial phenomena. They argue that this more complete picture of entrepreneurial phenomena will likely come from scholars who undertake at least some trailblazing projects; from scholars who broaden the range of research questions, the potential outcomes of entrepreneurial action, and the selection and combination of research methods; and from researchers who avoid the endless debates about the margins of the field and its sub-fields or about whether one theoretical or philosophical lens is superior to another. This book offers suggestions for future research through a variety of topics including prosocial action, i...

Grassroots Politics and Oil Culture in Venezuela: The Revolutionary Petro-State

by Iselin Åsedotter Strønen

This book is published open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book presents an ethnographic study of how grassroots activism in Venezuela during the Chávez presidency can be understood in relation to the country's history as a petro-state. Taking the contested relationship between the popular sectors and the Venezuelan state as a point of departure, Iselin Åsedotter Strønen explores how notions such as class, race, state, bureaucracy, popular politics, capitalism, neoliberalism, consumption, oil wealth, and corruption gained salience in the Bolivarian process. A central argument is that the Bolivarian process was an attempt to challenge the practices, ideas, and values inherited from Venezuela's historical development as an oil-producing state. Drawing on rich ethnographic material ...
