This paper takes into account the proliferation of specific economics attempting to account for complex phenomena unchained by development of the digital economy. While their list is not exhaustive, the article's focus is on the following: economics of sharing, wikinomics, attention economy, economy of access, experience economy, gift economy, reputation economy, gig economy, creative economy, relationship economy, trust economy. These are analyzed from the following perspectives/building blocks of the emerging digital economy: new types of work and labour market insertion, openness, cooperation and trust, prosumption and commitment, legal perspectives of remix and gifting. Finally, a point is raised whether this is still economics as these approaches borrow heavily from social psychology, sociology and cultural anthropology.
