With the rise of the “intangibles economy,” including artificial intelligence and the growing importance of data, how do we measure the digital economy? Jim Balsillie, CIGI founder and chair, delivers a keynote speech at this year’s International Monetary Fund (IMF) Statistical Forum on November 20, 2018, at 12:00 p.m. followed by a one-on-one discussion with IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde.
The IMF Statistical Forum aims to facilitate global dialogue on cutting-edge issues in macroeconomic and financial statistics. This year’s theme of “Measuring Economic Welfare in the Digital Age: What and How?” will examine the socio-economic implications of digitalization for welfare and what should be done to capture it in statistics.
