AI, IoT, Big Data, and Technologies in Digital Economy with Blockchain at Sustainable Work Satisfaction to Smart Mankind: Access to 6th Dimension of Human Rights

  • Andrea Romaoli Garcia
Part of the EAI/Springer Innovations in Communication and Computing book series (EAISICC)


The usefulness of this work lies in the need for the world economy to circulate product, service, and wealth in a safe and profitable way. The survival of mankind depends on this. Taxation to smart economy has been the cause of many discussions since 2015. Taxation should provide resources for governments to move the economy and ensure a dignity life for the citizen. It cannot be a cause of economic stagnation like it has been happening in many countries.

Thus, this work is a complete legal doctrine that serves as guideline for rulers, attorneys, lawyers, judges, companies, and anyone who is involved in the digital economy.

The international scenario calls for laws to ensure security, trust, and an inclusive standard for international taxation. Until January 2019, only a few countries have been doing their regulatory framework but there is still no inclusive standard and for this reason the scenario is chaotic and many companies find it difficult to move in full compliance.

The digital economy must be analyzed within the POSITIVE LEGAL FRAMEWORK. This is the set of laws that govern the life of the citizen in the public and private field, within his/her country or in the international field.

Thus, it will not be correct to analyze and discuss the digital economy only in the internal field of a country or consider only commercial conduct because this is part of the life of the citizen and affects all humanity in all fields: social, economic, criminal, civil, tributary, and humanitarian.

It isn’t correct to analyze the digital economy only on a bias. The angle should be 360° because the smart economy makes part of the world.

For these reasons, this legal doctrine is complete and provides a useful guideline for guiding conducts in the gray areas in smart economy.

In the field of law science, commercial or civilian conduct only has three possible commands: ALLOWED, COMPULSORY, AND PROHIBITED. There is no fourth alternative. So, everything that isn’t forbidden will consequently be allowed. The PRINCIPLE OF LEGALITY doesn’t authorize criminalization of conduct that hasn’t been described in law like a crime and there is the possibility that companies may claim the postponement of the effects of the new rules based on the PRINCIPLE OF ANTERIORITY.

Therefore, knowing the actions prohibited or against compliance, automatically, establishes the conduct that is allowed because they aren’t prohibited. This is important at this time where the digital economy doesn’t have a general and transparent international rule.

Establishing technologies like AI, IoT, big data, and smart economy with blockchain and cryptocurrencies as the 6TH DIMENSION OF HUMAN RIGHTS guides governments’ annual budget plans to maximize the application of taxes rather than just creating new forms of taxation that imposes weight unbearable for business and threatens the survival of mankind, and the democratic principles allow it to be brought in a participative way.

This legal doctrine results in peace to business and mankind, safe borders, and human security. It means a SUSTAINABLE WORLD and a SUSTAINABLE WORK SATISFACTION.
