Professor and author Eric Brynjolfsson, one of the world’s leading authorities on the role of information technology in driving economic growth and business competitive advantage, presents findings from his new book Wired for Innovation: How Information Technology is Reshaping the Economy. The book examines how a wave of business innovation, empowered by information technology, is driving a productivity resurgence in the U.S. economy, exploring the specific links through which IT affects productivity, innovation, competition, pricing, consumer surpluses and other aspects of the economy. Brynjolfsson has specifically tailored the book to help policymakers and business managers understand how information technologies drive productivity and growth at both the corporate and national economic levels.
