    Presentation Overview

    Technology is the Global Enabler: which countries will benefit? As an example, will Latin America Benefit from the Networked World?

    …A global networked world is an irreversible reality. Like any other major technological innovation which has changed the world, the advent of Information technology has the potential to impact every human activity. Its impact in the emerging markets could be much more dramatic than in the developed world. However others would argue it is the latest tool of Conquest and Colonization of the Neo-liberal Market Economy?
