“Wealth Building in a Digital Economy” Conference

December 5, 2019

9am Palo Alto

The Berggruen Institute, in partnership with the Aspen Institute, the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, and the Institute for the Future, is pleased to host the “Wealth Building in a Digital Economy” at Institute for the Future in Palo Alto on December 5th, 2019.

This invitation-only meeting is the first attempt to foster a conversation between specialists in broad wealth building and those trying to understand how to create a more equitable distribution of digital and data-based assets. By bringing together these two communities, we hope to address the challenges and opportunities that the importance of “non-tangible” capital and personal data present for creating a more equitable distribution of capital and wealth-building opportunities.

The roundtable will bring together participants from academia, policymaking, the financial industry, and the technology industry to outline the contours of the debate on the value of data and other “digital” assets and on broad public wealth building. In doing so, the organizers hope to build a sustained discussion in which issues of interest to both communities can be identified and expanded upon in later convening and working projects.
