The Emergent Geographies of FinTech II

Type: Paper
Sponsor Groups: Digital Geographies Specialty Group, Economic Geography Specialty Group
Organizers: Matthew Zook, Michael Grote
Chairs: Michael Grote


FinTech characterizes the application of information technologies to financial transactions and industries. The range of topics and use cases including almost all banking and financing topics such as exchanges, artificial intelligence ("robo") advising/coaching, micro-payments, development finance, blockchain and crypto-currencies, insurance, rating and lending, currency trading and crowd-sourced financing. These two sessions feature papers focused on how Fintech interacts with existing practices including the introduction of new features to the financial system and how different sets of people ("the unbanked", "the poor", etc.) and places ("global centers", "offshore", etc.) are imagined and enrolled. The papers explore the implications of Fintech for space, place, and scale within the financial industries, long standing labor practices, local institutions and organizations, as well as everyday life.
