The Barcelona GSE Digital Economy Summer School will deal with some of the challenges that regulators and policymakers face due to this technological revolution. The program targets advanced undergraduate and graduate students, researchers and practitioners that want to understand how the so-called new economy works.

These brand new courses will be taught by leading experts in different areas of digital economy and we will emphasize practical applications and discussion of policy-relevant problems: 

  • Economics of Crypto-currencies and Blockchain, with Guillaume Haeringer (Baruch College)

The objective of this course is giving participants a clear and concise understanding of Bitcoin’s design, highlighting its strengths and weaknesses. The program will also consider non-currency applications of blockchain.

  • Advanced Topics in Digital Economy, with Juan-José Ganuza (UPF and Barcelona GSE) and Rosa Ferrer (UPF and Barcelona GSE)

The aim of the course is to explain the functioning of the markets that digital platforms are promoting. The behavior of digital platforms differs from the classic business model that has been predominant until now. We will show how the information generated and processed by the digital economy affects the prices that companies set for their products and services.
