: the Information Age and its wider implications

What is the Information Age?

Internet Business: Profit from the Web

Implications of the Information Age

  • The Death (or reduced significance) of the nation state.
    • An entrepreneur in Canada runs a Web site hosted in China selling to customers in Europe.
    • Another runs a site entirely from a ship sailing in international waters.
    • Whose laws apply? Who can enforce them?
  • Single global currency
  • Cyberspace is truly libertarian (anarchistic) - Cannot be governed or policed.
  • BUT people change slower than technology - so BIG growth in net business / home working / job ownership yet to come - even though technologically possible BUT SHIFT IS INEVITABLE.
