Information technology, productivity, and economic growth : international evidence and implications for economic development ( Book )
15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 267 libraries worldwide
The often-advocated view that the information technology revolution will change the world must stem from the basic premise that investment in IT has a visible impact on productivity and economic growth. But how can we measure this impact and how large is it? By surveying previous studies and by presenting new micro- and macroeconomic evidence, this collection shows that in recent years the use of IT in the production of goods and services has had a strong influence on productivity and economic growth in industrial and in newly industrialized countries. Yet developing countries seem neither to have invested in IT nor benefited from such investments to the same extent as industrial countries. There is concern that information is becoming a commodity, like income and wealth, by which countries are classified as rich and poor. The contributors to this volume argue that investment in infrastructure, physical capital, and education is the key to economic development. This is an old policy prescription in the economics of development. What is new is the suggestion that the IT content of these investments should be high

The new economy in development : ICT challenges and opportunities by Anthony P D'Costa( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Within the last three decades, industrialization, and manufacturing in particular, has decreased in importance as the principal driver of economic growth and development in the world economy. The expansion of the service sector in industrialized societies reflects the increasing significance of the 'weightless' economy and information and communication technologies (ICT) in the process of wealth generation. While most developing countries remain outside the orbit of these structural shifts, several developing countries have not only successfully filled the manufacturing niches vacated by the OECD economies but several are also experiencing growth in the ICT-driven service sector. In this collection an international mix of academics and policy-makers address the implications of ICT and the new service-driven economy on developing countries, examining its importance and addressing challenges that confront those that have embraced these approaches. Examining the links between ICT and globalization, this collection reveals how ICT can enhance economic growth, government efficiency, transparency and accountability, but also how the persistence of old economy problems, such as poverty, inequality, illiteracy and infrastructure may mean that investment in ICT is unlikely to have a developmental impact
