5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jonathan Koomey on March 11, 2001
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a voracious reader of books and articles about recent developments in information technology (IT). This book is the first I've found to present the latest research in economics, business, and public policy related to IT, and to do so in a way that is accurate, comprehensive, readable, and engaging. The editors deserve kudos for their choice of articles and for enforcing the analytical rigor so often lacking in consulting reports and popular articles in this field. I heartily recommend this book!

12 of 15 people found the following review helpful By George Harris on October 11, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This book is an essential antidote to all the fluff out there written by pundits and consultants. The books consists of 14 chapters written by experts in the field reporting original research on how the digital economy really works and how it is transforming business.
Anyone interested in seriously understanding the "new" economy needs to read this book.

Format: Hardcover
Some of the chapters in this book have priceless material, e.g. the Chapter on "Understanding Digital Markets" by Smith, Bailey and Brynjolfsson and the review of technology's role in growing income inequality by Katz.
We need more research like this.
