    1. This article is important for Diplo for the following reasons:

      • growing relevance of digital economy for governance and policy will requie us to improve our coverage of digital economy and finance.
      • an interplay governments-companies will be crucial for understanding future digital developments.
      • need to improve our understanding and research in the field of digital finance.

      What can we do? This 'lifting' will be part of my (JovanK) 'sandbox' approach where I will try to map our existing human and tech resources and in a short time bring our coverage of these issues on the higher level.

      How ti will be done

      • gain full understanding of economic indicators that we will follow, including how often we have to follow them (just-in-time, monthly, quaterly, annually). JovanNj, who is economist by training will organise presentation for us.
      • after we identify economic parametars to follow we will re-organise our existing resources and identify new resources where we can find them (especially resources that we have to follow just-in-time)
      • start integration into our research (I am drafting article on an interplay between economic parameters and governance), web-services (DW, comparison softare), courses, etc.

    1. Apple is facing active antitrust inquiries in both the US and EU over its app store policies, particularly the flat 30 percent cut the company collects for fees paid through the store. Last month, Cicilline told The Verge that the fees Apple charges equate to “highway robbery.

      Issue with Apple (US & EU investigations): sellers have to pay 30% of their fees to the iStore, which amounts to daylight robbery
