Digital Economy: Opening Statement: The past, present, and future of the digital economy
by Maja Vuković, Kemal Delic
Over time economies advanced from the initial barter exchange of goods and services to the invention of money and rise of the industrial age, morphing into today's modern, web-intensive economy. We are witnessing the rise of the digital economy (DE), where digital technologies are creating, adapting, and consuming goods and services. Entire industries are under pressure to transform and adapt to DE circumstances. In this symposium, authors present an overview of the evolution of digital economy, as well as emerging trends and challenges.
