About this product
- DescriptionInvation in information and communication techlogy (ICT) fuels the growth of the global ecomy. How ICT markets evolve depends on politics and policy, and since the 1950s periodic overhauls of ICT policy have transformed competition and invation. For example, in the 1980s and the 1990s a revolution in communication policy (the introduction of sweeping competition) also transformed the information market. Today, the diffusion of Internet, wireless, and broadband techlogy, growing modularity in the design of techlogies, distributed computing infrastructures, and rapidly changing business models signal ather shift. This pathbreaking examination of ICT from a political ecomy perspective argues that continued rapid invation and ecomic growth require new approaches in global governance that will reconcile diverse interests and enable competition to flourish. The authors (two of whom were architects of international ICT policy reforms in the 1990s) discuss this crucial turning point in both theoretical and practical terms.
