Regional Perspectives: An Overview
Our main concern in this volume is to examine the effect that globalization and information technology (IT) are having on developing countries. Some analysis of industrial countries is also presented for completeness and as yardstick against which the impact of globalization on developing regions can be considered. If there is one thing that the earlier chapters have suggested, it is that the impact of globalization and IT vary considerably across regions and national boundaries. For simplicity, and despite the significant variations within them, this overview uses the same conventional designation of regions applied throughout the rest of the volume, namely South Asia, East and SouthEast Asia, Africa, Latin America and the OECD countries.
