YSI Workshop in Hong Kong this Friday!_”Finance, Law & Econ in East Asia”

Dear all,

A reminder that our YSI Workshop on “Finance, Law and Economics in East Asia” is to be held this Friday 14th September 2018 at Chinese University of Hong Kong!

East Asia and Finance, Law & Economics Working Groups are excited to be organising this interdisciplinary workshop in collaboration with WINIR and CUHK. Our focus is on the future of financial technology and its impacts in East Asia, which has emerged as a leading region and hub for these new technologies. In the morning, we are glad to have Prof. Angela Daly, Prof. Michelle Miao and Dr. Mahdi Miraz from CUHK Faculty of Law who will present about regulatory responses to technology in China. In the afternoon, young scholars will present their papers on economic and policy issues arising from the development of financial technology to discuss the future for, and challenges of, fin-tech. We are delighted that Professor Geoffrey Hodgson will join us to act as a discussant for young scholars.

Beyond regulatory responses by local monetary authorities, fintech and cryptocurrencies have deeper social, political and cultural implications. In the workshop we will explore these issues with the aim of achieving a critical understanding of their place in the structural transformation of modern economies and potential diverging paths forward in their further development.
