The digital economy is a new economic era and social form of human society after the industrial revolution and information economy. It creates the free time and free activities needed for human development, provides an exploratory plan for the modern society to move toward the sharing economy, and brings many development relations issues that we need to face and examine objectively. From the perspective of human development, this paper deeply discussed the development progress of digital economy through specific cases. We believe that the digital economy breaks the rigid and rational world of humankind based on causality but makes more possible correlations become the philosophical support behind the digital economy model, thereby creating more possibilities for.
