Summary

"Drawing on macroeconomics data as well as eye-opening anecdotes, Charles Kenny underscores the trade-offs and constraints inherent in the new communications technology. His work raises questions about the advisability of channeling scarce investment funds into the Internet when countries are confronting more basic challenges in the realm of education, health, and infrastructure."--BOOK JACKET.
