Example text

Therefore it is not possible to perfectly assess ITA commitments across countries. Bijit Bora and Xinpeng Liu (2004) undertake a comprehensive research effort using the very detailed data available and gravity-model analysis. Their results suggest that two trading partners, both ITA members, trade 7 percent more with each other than if neither of them were a WTO (or ITA) member. If two countries are trading partners—the exporter a member of the ITA and the importer not— then the importer imports 6 percent less than if neither of the trading partners were members of the WTO (or ITA).

For example, for individual IT software application products (such as spreadsheets), the product purchased and used by a greater number of users is priced higher than the one used by fewer people—there is a “network premium” embodied in the price of that product (Brynjolffsson and Kemerer 1996, Shapiro and Varian 1999). 1 Chapter 3 will discuss the macroeconomics of network effects and the implication of the differences in investment in IT capital across sectors in the United States. Because network connectivity augments the value of IT capital, the communications sector takes on added importance in supporting economic growth.

Through foreign direct investment and offshore affiliate relationships, US firms are leading forces in globalizing the use of IT. As will be discussed in chapters 5 through 7, the effects of IT—globalization and the acceleration of change— are most apparent in the US economy, as are the consequent policy issues. More broadly, the US experience is a useful harbinger of what may be in store for other countries as they become increasingly exposed to rapid globalization through the pervasive use of networked IT.
