Stanford University


We write about digital technology and how it’s shaping our world.

The digital economy is a field of research that can often feel opaque or abstract. We’re working to change that.

The Stanford Digital Economy Lab seeks to be an objective, nonpartisan, and trusted source of information on the digital economy. Our goal is to produce evidence-based information that spans a range of media and is accessible to everyone.
