Dependence of Digital Economy on Free Labor

Analiza D. Resurreccion
Abstract—This paper focuses on the development of digital economy as well as its dependence on free labor. The researcher reviews related literature and studies, and conducts interview among young entrepreneurs to seek answers to questions related to the aforementioned. Digital economy is not just a phenomenon; it is a formation which intersects on the one hand with the postmodern cultural economy and on the other hand with the information industry that constitutes a challenge to a theoretical and practical engagement with the question of labor. Digitization affects the metabolism of the economy the same way it significantly affects the capacity of humans to communicate across time and space. It is an important area of experimentation which relies on free labor.

Index Terms—Dependence, digital economy, digitization, free labor.
