Smart Ledgers are the ‘next big thing’ in technology. They’re based on a combination of mutual distributed ledgers (MDLs, aka blockchain: multi-organisational databases with a super audit trail, used since 2009 in cryptocurrencies) with embedded programming and sensing, thus permitting semi-intelligent, autonomous transactions. Smart Ledgers are touted as a technology for fair play in a globalised world. There are numerous projects building trade systems using this technology with announcements from governments, shipping firms, large IT firms, and the like. The research is intended to inform policy makers and business people making decisions about moving towards these systems.

“The Economic Impact of Smart Ledgers On World Trade” features an econometric approach, which maps trade frictions that Smart Ledger technology might be able to offset, especially in the realm of non-tariff and bureaucratic barriers to trade. The Master World Trader, Professor Michael Mainelli, and Past Master, Professor Heather McLaughlin have overseen the project.
