Production, Employment and Income Distribution in the Global Digital Economy  

Project name/title
Production, Employment and Income Distribution in the Global Digital Economy
Year:
2000
Theme:
Employment and Industry
Abstract:
Danny Quah argued that the most profound impact of the IT revolution is that it makes modern economies increasingly weightless or dematerialized in the sense that an increasingly greater fraction of gross domestic product comes to reside in economic goods with little or no physical manifestation. The aim of this project is to derive the implications of the digital technology for productivity and growth, location of production, firm and industrial structure, employment and income distribution, and economic development at the global level.
