Abstract

Technological progress comes in waves. The birth of information technology (IT) may herald the start of a Third Industrial Revolution. This paper argues that (a) the market declined in the late 1960s because it felt that the old technologies either had lost their momentum or would give way to IT, and that (b) IT innovators boosted the stock market's value only in the 1980s.
