Editorial Reviews

Booknews
James (development economics, Tilburg U., The Netherlands) discusses the influence of information technology on patterns of globalization and how such patterns can be altered to reduce the growing technological divide between rich and poor countries. Addressed is the conceptual nature of the mechanisms through which this new technology influences globalization and examination of the disparate outcomes of these processes in various parts of the world economy. Also covered are the policy issues relating to how the mechanisms of technological dissemination can be made more responsive to the needs of developing countries and particularly the poor living within them.
