Example text

Three times as much money is spent (data in nominal dollars) on IT services and software in the United States as on IT hardware, with other large industrialized economies approaching similar multiples. While the demand for hardware is growing fastest in the developing countries, software and services expenditure in those nations has been a bit delayed (albeit exhibiting rapid growth from very modest bases), as these locations wait for hardware and communications infrastructure to be put into place.

They include time and country dummies in their econometric specification. 3 (IT hardware). 8 (IT software). 6 (IT software). Finally, they use national income accounts data for the United States and France for 1980–98. 2 (IT hardware). The figures for France are similar. In sum, IT products are GDP elastic throughout the world, and are price elastic in many subsectors. In the aggregate both characteristics are true for the United States as well. These elasticities are important underpinnings for the analysis to follow on how the globalization of IT enhances investment in the sector and thus accelerates productivity growth in the United States.

From 1990 to 2004, the US share shrank from 19 to 11 percent of global IT exports, and Japan’s share dropped from 20 to 8 percent. Powerhouse exporters in China, Malaysia, Mexico, Taiwan, and Korea vaulted in the ranks of IT exporters. On the import side for both IT and communications, there has been less change in the top five, but nations have changed within that group. The US share of global imports of IT slipped from the number one ranking at 21 percent to number two (if China and Hong Kong are taken together) at 15 percent.
