  4. Bridging the Global Digital Divide

    Bridging the Global Digital Divide

    Jeffrey James
    Employing a rigorous analytical framework, the author bases his analysis on the concept of international technological dualism. He argues that one possible solution to the problem is the availability of affordable technologies, such as low-cost computers, which are specifically designed for the income levels and socio-economic conditions of developing countries. He also emphasises that the most important aim of any policy measure should be to provide universal access to information technologies, rather than individual ownership. Depending on whether or not this divide can be bridged will, to a large degree, determine whether developing countries are able to attain higher levels of productivity, prosperity and global integration.

    Corporate Technological Competence and the Evolution of Technological Diversification

    Felicia M. Fai

The book explores the changing nature of this diversification with respect to firm size, technological relatedness and technological complexity in 32 firms distributed across four broadly defined industrial sectors.

    Johan Lembke
    This book deals with the development of infrastructure in the mobile communications, transport, space and radio sectors.
