In 1998, Internet-related industries created over a million jobs and generated more than $330 billion in revenue. As of December 1999, almost five million commercial websites had emerged, and that number was increasing at a rate of almost half a million per month. The explosive growth of the Internet economy has drastically changed the way commercial transactions are conducted, making anything from books to databases available at the click of a mouse. This book investigates the underlying economics of the Internet, focusing specifically on the pricing of access, the pricing of goods and services sold online, the relationship between network effects, technological innovation and business strategy, and the issues surrounding taxation of electronic commerce. Addressing the economic aspects of the Internet and electronic commerce as well as traditional pricing practices and market structure, this volume will serve as a roadmap for the current and future terrain of the Internet economy.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: This study set out to explore representations of the new economy amongst business professionals in Internet enabled business. Going beyond the new economy- hype , the study was aimed at understanding the ways that business professionals make sense of the contemporary economy. In doing so, a social psychological perspective was taken, allowing multiple realities to emerge. Behavioural economists and economic psychologists conceptualisations of economic life are challenged. They hinge on the presumption that individuals act independently from their social environment and deviate as cognitive misers from a single legitimate economic rationality. By contrast, this study drew on a social constructionist framework. More specifically, it employed social representations theory (Moscovici, 1961/76; Moscovici, 1984), which rehabilitated common sense as a legitimate form of knowledge. The theory of social representations as a theory of knowledge proved as a sensitive and more sophisticated tool to analyse contemporary economy in its manifestations in professionals common sense. It is suggested to view the notion of common sense independently of role constellations. Given this framework, this study took a snapshot of the contemporary representational field of the new economy amongst business professionals. Particularly, the study was focused on exploring the taken-for-granted and beliefs underpinning discourses and symbols. Data from semi-structured interviews and an in-depth analysis of Web-sites highlighted new findings: Business professionals have constructed symbolic meaning centring around the notion of interaction. Economic and social beliefs were not separated: Interaction is the new economy. The new and seemingly unlimited digital connectivity was perceived as a challenge and triggered a symbolic creation of a new space - the faceless space of interaction. Meanings around the faceless space of interaction are constructed in strong contrast to physical proximity and shared experience in communities: the face-to-face space. From numerous interlocking discourses and images a core set of values emerged at the heart of the representational field, deeply embedded in professionals common sense. Representations of new technology, of business professionals skills and roles in the new economy, of space and time were informed by symbolic coping with the challenges posed by the faceless space. This was evident in situative [...]

The dynamics of the digital economy in the US, Europe and Japan are rather different. Some EU countries come close to the USA as the leading OECD country in the new economy, but Japan faces particular problems in catching-up digitally. Information and communication technology will affect productivity growth, production, the financial system and trade. Setting adequate rules for the digital economy - at the national and international level - is a key challenge for industrialized countries. Moreover, cultural and organizational challenges will also have to be met.

While much progress has been made in building the Knowledge Economy, many challenges remain. This requires ever-greater transparency of public and private initiatives, whether commercial, legislative, political, social or technical in nature. It is important that human, cultural and technological issues related to eAdoption and the Digital Divide are constantly in the public eye. This book brings together a comprehensive collection of over 230 contributions on commercial, government or societal exploitation of the Internet and ICT, representing cutting edge research from over 30 countries. The issues, applications and case studies presented facilitate knowledge sharing, which is key to addressing global eAdoption issues and the Digital Divide. It can be used to benchmark regional and national developments, avoid previous mistakes and identify potential partners and exploitation opportunities.The increased emphasis on close cooperation and collaboration between end users and commercial and academic researchers is very welcome, and augurs well for the continued development of the European Research Area Reflecting the breadth and depth of the ICT related research undertaken by the contributors.

This gritty, unflinching philosophical detective novel addresses themes of Aboriginal rights, privilege, and art. Margaret Thatcher Gandarrwuy is an internationally renowned Aboriginal artist whose works command high prices, until a new painting is unveiled. It is discovered slashed, with the words “The artist is a thief” hastily scrawled across it. Jean-Loup Wild, a Melbourne financial consultant, is sent by an Aboriginal civil rights group to investigate and is caught between the art world, with its wealth, fashions, heroes, and sophisticated private language, and the Aboriginal community, with its poverty, social problems, kinship ties, and unchanging traditional law. While operating in these dual worlds, Jean-Loup delves deeply into the layers of Australian society, discovering the prejudices at the bedrock.
