Lagging information technology infrastructure can handicap emerging countries subjecting them to de facto trade discrimination in the world marketplace - but closing the gap will not be easy. In this collection of essays, renowned authors from various disciplines have drawn on supply chain analysis and industry studies to elucidate how NICT - new information and communications technologies - like mobile telephony and the Internet have been affecting low-income communities and small entrepreneurs from Bangladesh to South Africa. The general conclusion is sobering. NICT is no panacea for low productivity and profitability in emerging countries hampered by weak infrastructure, limited managerial expertise, poor quality control, and severemarket distortions. Companies anywhere must nonetheless be ĆwiredĆ to have any chance of competing in the global marketplace and perhaps reach hitherto inaccessible customers.
