In recent years, there have been many conversations about regulating big technology platforms. These have focused on the one hand, on updating the regulatory framework to address competition, privacy, and political sustainability concerns that are not limited to the financial sector; and on the other hand, on addressing finance-specific challenges and opportunities from new technology. This session will bring together the two sets of debates.
Joining this episode of Financial Statements were:
Nicolas Véron, Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE)
- Hyun Song Shin, Economic Adviser and Head of Research, Bank for International Settlements
- Rory MacFarquhar, Senior Vice President, Mastercard
This event complements a separate session held on February 9, 2021, on innovation and cross-border coordination of big tech regulation, in the PIIE Global Connections series hosted by Caroline Atkinson.
