Globalisation, new technology and economic transformation

Globalisation Economics Information technology

In this book chapter Rob Atkinson shows how the ICT revolution, not globalization, is at the heart of the social and economic transformations of the last quarter-century.

In his chapter, “Globalisation, New Technology and Transformation” (192), published in Social Justice in the Global Age by the Policy Network, Atkinson explains that the overwhelming increase in global productivity and prosperity throughout the last several decades can be attributed to technology’s growing importance in the global economy.
