Information technology and global interdependence

edited by Meheroo Jussawalla, Tadayuki Okuma & Toshihiro Araki ; foreword by Kazuo Ogura

While considerable attention has been focused on how information technologies (IT) are affecting particular industrialized nations, the broader implications of the "information revolution" have begun to be appreciated only in the past few years. This volume represents a first step in understanding the global impact of these technological advances. Based on a series of recent conferences, it distills the collective wisdom of an international group of some 40 specialists in communications, trade, finance, development and diplomacy. The authors identify the potential repercussions arising from the worldwide dissemination of IT and explore the adjustments and collective responses that may help to maximize benefits and reduce harmful effects.
