European Liberal Forum, Institute for Politics and Society and UBER hold a business breakfast "The UberEconomy - a shared future?" as follow-up event of international conference Digital Czech Republic and its panel Digitization of Payments and Finances.
The shared economy is the most visible example of a disruption to traditional commercial models in the digital world. So-called uberisation has hit not only the personal transportation and accommodation sectors, but has gradually entered other services such as education or health service. It brings forth challenges to traditional views on employee relations, taxes and other contributions, and perhaps even the very concept of ownership.
But this is an actual, common and effective use of resources? Will it bring the economy to a greater level of creation and wealth? Come discuss this idea of a shared future, which affects all of us, with top economists:
Mateusz Litewski, Public Policy Manager, Central & Eastern Europe at Uber (Poland)
Ondřej Malý, Digital Agenda Coordinator, Office of the Government of the Czech Republic
Aleš Chmelař, Financial Analyst, Office of the Government of the Czech Republic
Aleš Michl, Chief Economist and Co-owner at Investment Fund QUANT
Jaromír Novák, Chairman of the Council of the Czech Telecommunication Office
Jan Klesla, Deputy Head of the Economic Section, Lidové noviny
The moderator is Pavel Kysilka, economist and founder of 6DAcademy. The event will take place on 22 May 2017 in English and its by invitation only. Download policy paper here or report here also the video-record here.
