Author

  • Surfield, Christopher J.

Abstract

We statistically evaluate the impact that technology has on economic performance. We find that technologies such as the computer increase the productivity of an economy’s labor force and increase the per capita GDP. We find it is developing, not industrialized, economies that most benefit from information technology.
