The Role of Information in Technology Adoption under Poverty

Jinhua Zhao ()

Working Papers from eSocialSciences

Abstract: An important channel through which globalization affects poverty is introducing new technologies to developing countries. Adoption of new technologies can be hindered by uncertainties about their efficiency. This paper studies the role of information exchange between adopters and others about a new technology and about each other’s likelihood of adoption. [Research Paper No. 2005/41]
