Information Technology and Economic Development: An Introduction to the Research Issues

Matti Pohjola ()

No wp-1998-153, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: There is substantial evidence that new information technologies are in many ways transforming the operations of modern economies. More than half of employees use a computer at work in the most advanced industrial countries. About 10 per cent of the value of all private investment in fixed non-residential capital is devoted to computers and peripheral equipment in the United States and some other economies. This share goes up to 25 per cent when investment in information processing equipment is included.
