MEDIA REVIEWS

'An elegant, insightful and extremely helpful book in understanding intriguing connections between ICT and economic growth. Because of its analytical and yet readable style, the book is an essential reading for professional economists, policy makers and well-informed readers.' - Lakhwinder Singh, Department of Economics, Punjabi University

'To date, discussion about the new economy has generally fallen into two camps - optimistic or pessimistic. The value of D'Costa's volume is that a more balanced analysis is provided, drawing on case studies from various regions so that proper consideration of the new economy and developing world can take place.' - Matthew Clarke, Program Leader - International Development School of Global Studies, Social Science and Planning, RMIT University

'This book is a useful addition to the growing literature that explores what the rise of the "new economy" means for low-income countries...a well-produced book that substantially contributes to our understanding of these issues.' - M. Vijayabaskar, Economic and Political Weekly
