Growth and Development of the IT Industry in Bangalore and Singapore: A Comparative Study
About the publication
Recent evidence suggests that the rapid economic growth in advanced economies in the latter part of the 1990s can be attributed to advances in the information technology (IT) sector and the application of these technologies in other areas of the economy. This has sparked considerable interest in various facts about the "new economy". This comparative study (the first of its kind), of the IT industries in Bangalore and Singapore identifies some key differences and similarities in the evolution of IT industries and the underlying factors for their growth and development. The book argues that their growth trajectories can be directly attributed to factors originating in their distinct environments. The book should be of interest to academicians and policy makers alike.
