“After a decade of debate, there is now a consensus among economists on the central role of information technology as driver of economic growth in today's economy. But, as the papers in this volume illustrate, the real key to productivity growth is not the technology itself, but rather the corporate and governmental institutions that the technology enables and requires. Bai and Yuen have assembled a group of the world’s top scholars to grapple with these issues, and the result is essential reading for any serious student of technological change and growth."--,”

“For nearly 30 years, Dale Jorgenson has been a towering figure in the fields of econometrics and the economics of technical change. This volume is essential for any serious student and has the added benefit of being a delight to read. I particularly enjoyed Dale's analysis of the information technology revolution which is growing both in its pace of progress and its impact on the economy.”
