Trade, Trust and Information Power - In Transition to Sustainability
Mid Sweden University, Faculty of Science, Technology and Media, Department of Information Systems and Technology.
2017 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Trade, Trust and Information Power. Lessons learned from Online Trade. This is a book about how trust is used, misused and shaped in an online financial context. The author also suggests ways forward for the financial markets, pointing towards client-oriented e-financial services. Digitalization both challenges and opens up new possibilities to perform financial activities. Which also shapes relations of power in new ways. Along with other challenges such as climate change, this requires of us to consider how we want to perform human activities in a sustainable way. 

Results based on an ethnographic study indicate that individuals are very vulnerable in a global digital market place, and the means for trustworthiness at different levels are insufficient, exposing individuals to high risks and uncertainty of who is actually to trust. One important conclusion is that in order to be able to work for the benefit of many, such a system needs to ensure trust. And that digital records and archives have a crucial role in realizing this.
