The 10th IMF Statistical Forum will explore how we can better measure intangible capital to better support investment policy, taxation policy and macroeconomic analysis.
Researchers, policymakers, statisticians, regulators and representatives from the private sector will come together to discuss:
- Why is it important that we measure investment in intangible capital? What implications does the greater importance of intangibles have for tax, fiscal, and monetary policy?
- What are the new forms of intangible capital that we need to consider when measuring economic activity?
- How can we measure these forms of intangible capital, including the valuation of intangible assets, their depreciation, and their sale?
