A New Economy? The Changing Role of Innovation and Information Technology in Growth

What is driving recent growth in OECD countries? Why are their levels of GDP per capita no longer converging? These and other questions are addressed in the study A New Economy? The Changing Role of Innovation and Information Technology in Growth. The study examines the role of innovation and information and communications technologies in recent growth performance of OECD member countries, including Canada. Findings show that success requires a range of complementary factors that support the innovation-intensive growth exemplified by new information and communication technologies such as the Internet and Internet applications like electronic commerce. Parts of the study are devoted to a look at the strong performance of the "new economy" in the United States, but other sections, tables and charts provide for comparisons between OECD Member countries. While this study is far from exhaustive, it represents an important step in understanding the conditions under which economies flourish.
