Invite: Thur Jan 19th - "The Employment Effects of Advances in Internet and Wireless Technology"

NDN/NPI is proud to have released a major new paper, "The Employment Effects of Advances in Internet and Wireless Infrastructure: Evaluating the Transitions from 2G to 3G and from 3G to 4G."

Written by prominent economists Kevin Hassett and Rob Shapiro, the paper quantifies the economic benefits - from jobs to innovation - associated with the deployment of and investment in more advanced internet infrastructure and mobile devices. It also looks at job gains linked to the spreading use of mobile telephony as wireless technologies advanced to take advantage of the increased capacity of 2G and 3G networks, and forecasts the impact of the current transition from 3G to 4G technologies.
