This chapter discusses the role of the new information technologies as a general purpose technology pervading all areas of production, distribution, consumption, and governance. It notes that the debate about the knowledge-based economy is therefore, perhaps inevitably, a debate also about the process of globalisation. It explains that the OECD has produced a number of reports which aim to bring together the most up-to-date policy research and promote debate on the alternative paths of socio-economic development that countries are pursuing.

Keywords:   knowledge-based economy, information technologies, globalisation, OECD, policy research, socio-economic development
