Globalization isn’t dying, said Erik van der Marel in an important paper last year as everyone feared the Covid-19 crisis would throw us all into protectionism. Globalization is changing – and has been doing so for more than a decade. But what does this entail for global competition, trade policy and regulations? What type of regulatory approach to data and data usage have been tested in the world – and what result do they have? Is there a model approach for regulating the new digital economy?
In this episode, Fredrik Erixon and Erik van der Marel talk about data, regulations and new globalization.
Erik van der Marel is a Senior Economist at ECIPE and a leading expert on digital trade. An Associate Professor at the Université Libre de Bruxelles and Consultant Economist at the World Bank, he has authored several studies on services trade and digital trade, including Globalisation isn’t in Decline – it’s Changing and Regulation the Globalisation of Data: Which Model Works Best?
