Government and the global digital transformation: the other side of the mirror
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractAmid the global digital transformation, the seemingly simple question of the government delivering on peace, justice and strong institutions turns into a conundrum. Several factors weigh in on what the government can do, envisages to do and dares to do today. State power, raison d’étre, the nature of the global order, including global governance, are just a few of the issues that need to be factored in the analysis. Clearly, questions of ideology, including the degree of government intervention in the economy, the very definition of market economy and even of the scope of (economic) freedom are equally important in the conversation about the government today. People, and so personalities, do matter too, in that they influence the way things are done, expressed and communicated, regardless of the institutional, i.e. frequently rigid, structural confines.
