tanks in the reform era. These include the leadership-s
call for -scientific decision-making,- the need for
specialized expertise in economics and finance as China

leaders in the wake of a telecommunication revolution
driven by social media, the accumulation of human and
financial capital, and the increasing utility of the
-revolving door- nature of think tanks. It has been

This book analyses modern conceptual models of
information economies, highlighting and examining their
systemic contradictions and failings. It explores the
disconnection between the readiness of the technical
infrastructure for forming and developing the information
economy, and an unprepared institutional and societal
structure that is therefore unable to implement these
processes and models. The editors present different
approaches to solving these methodological and practical
contradictions and lay out future models across different
international contexts. They also provide recommendations
for optimizing their theoretical model and improving its
implementation in modern economic systems.

This book looks at the latest advances in autonomous
driving, demonstrating that a future once considered
science fiction is now close at hand. Acceptance of
driverless cars relies on more than just the technology
that delivers it, In this book the authors consider the
shift in attitudes required for social acceptance and a
move towards considering cars one aspect of a wider
mobility solution. Autonomous driving offers a solution
for the high pollution levels and management of the
transport infrastructure where current methods are
proving insufficient in places of high population
density. From ethical considerations in the programming
of automated driving procedures to changes in attitudes
towards car ownership and design, this title is a
comprehensive look at the latest revolution in mobility.
