Call for papers: Astronomics Society inaugural workshop: The Economics of Space

This workshop will focus on economic and legal analysis of commercial development of space (basically the economics and governance of business in space). We are interested in a range of topics, where possible examples include:
• Regulation of Commerce (taxation of extraterrestrial activity; trade between Earth and space facilities; trade between extraterrestrial facilities)
• Natural Resource Extraction and its Implications (mining of celestial bodies; salvage in space; treaties governing such activities)
• Contract Issues (property rights and contract enforcement without governing bodies; liability and insurance challenges for commercial launch service providers; arbitration)
• Sovereignty Concerns (competition among governments in space; antipiracy enforcement; extraterrestrial sovereignty)
• Competition Policy Issues (rules; effective enforcement; lack of governing authority; market access to space; allocating orbits)
• Technology and Innovation (spillovers between aerospace and other industries; scale economies and market power in commercial launch services and communication services; the development and application of machine learning)
• Multilateral Agreements (design of agreements; dispute settlement and arbitration; managing space trash; allocating orbits)

The goal of the workshop is twofold.
