Product Description

The rapid growth of electronic commerce, along with changes in information,
computing, and communications, is having a profound effect on the United States economy. President
Clinton recently directed the National Economic Council, in consultation with executive branch
agencies, to analyze the economic implications of the Internet and electronic commerce domestically
and internationally, and to consider new types of data collection and research that could be
undertaken by public and private organizations.This book contains work presented at a conference
held by executive branch agencies in May 1999 at the Department of Commerce. The goals of the
conference were to assess current research on the digital economy, to engage the private sector in
developing the research that informs investment and policy decisions, and to promote better
understanding of the growth and socioeconomic implications of information technology and electronic
commerce. Aspects of the digital economy addressed include macroeconomic assessment, organizational
change, small business, access, market structure and competition, and employment and the
workforce.

5.0 out of 5 stars To truly understand the information age, read this book! 11 Mar 2001
By Jonathan Koomey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm a voracious reader of books and articles about recent developments in information technology (IT). This book is the first I've found to present the latest research in economics, business, and public policy related to IT, and to do so in a way that is accurate, comprehensive, readable, and engaging. The editors deserve kudos for their choice of articles and for enforcing the analytical rigor so often lacking in consulting reports and popular articles in this field. I heartily recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Guide 11 Oct 2000
By George Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is an essential antidote to all the fluff out there written by pundits and consultants. The books consists of 14 chapters written by experts in the field reporting original research on how the digital economy really works and how it is transforming business.
Anyone interested in seriously understanding the "new" economy needs to read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some great stuff in here! 23 Oct 2000
By "henry_georgeiii" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Some of the chapters in this book have priceless material, e.g. the Chapter on "Understanding Digital Markets" by Smith, Bailey and Brynjolfsson and the review of technology's role in growing income inequality by Katz.
We need more research like this.
