Abstract

El objetivo principal de esta investigación es estudiar el efecto de las tecnologías de la información y de las comunicaciones (TIC) sobre el comercio y el desarrollo económico para el caso de España. Las TIC afectan al desarrollo económico directa e indirectamente, y es en el efecto indirecto en el que se centra este trabajo. Desde un punto de vista empírico se analiza el efecto de las TIC sobre el comercio internacional, para en un segundo análisis centrarse en el efecto indirecto que tienen las TIC sobre la renta a través del comercio. Este trabajo se basa en que el comercio internacional es un importante canal a través del cual las TIC afectan al desarrollo económico. Finalmente, se estudia, de manera descriptiva, la situación española del sector TIC, para concluir que una mejora en la dotación en TIC tendría un efecto positivo sobre el desarrollo económico. We aim to study the effect of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) on trade and economic development in the Spanish case. ICT endowments affect, directly and indirectly, economic development. From an empirical point of view, this paper focuses on the indirect effect. First, the effect of the ICT on international trade is analysed. A second analysis focuses on the indirect effect of ICT on income, where trade is the channel that relates both variables. Finally, from a descriptive point of view, the Spanish situation of the ICT sector is analysed. The main conclusion is that economic development could be improved by increasing ICT endowments.
