Technology greatly expanded the set of possible market/payment structures. Which ones look good on paper? And, will they work? Is regulatory intervention needed? This conference will take on these first-order topics.

  • What set of new market/payment structures did technology bring within reach?
  • What structure is desirable? Does it need regulatory intervention?
  • Is Mifid II adequate, or do we need Mifid III?

This conference explores how technology is changing securities markets. The preliminary programme consists of three panel sessions covering three broad themes. Each session will start with a 20-minute talk by a keynote speaker, followed by a panel session.

The conference is by invitation-only. If you wish to be considered for participation, please register your interest here.

The internet is changing the way people do business. This column looks at how e-commerce has affected market structure among travel agencies, bookstores, and car dealerships. It suggests that low-cost firms will gain market share and may even become more profitable as e-commerce spreads, while higher-cost firms will be hurt, perhaps fatally.

The art of the past century was radically different from earlier art. This column says that that was a direct result of a basic change in the structure of the market for advanced art that occurred during the late nineteenth century. Indeed, contemporary art is the logical result of young conceptual innovators operating in a competitive market that has consistently rewarded radical and conspicuous innovation.
