Prof Bernardo Batiz-Lazo

Professor

Department: Newcastle Business School

Although I have made contributions to the business and economic history of Latin America (mainly Mexico) and Spain as well as accounting history, my main area of work has been the impact of computer technology on retail banking. This has included touching on contemporary issues around the cashless economy, retail payments, globalization and international trade. Currently I am looking at the emergence of FinTech as a global phenomenon.


Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences (sponsor Economic History Society) (2020).
