Digital Economy: The Evolution of Regulation, Competition, and Innovation

As economic activity has increasingly moved from traditional telephony to the more robust platforms of wireless and wireline broadband communications, the potential exists for substantial improvements in the economic lives of both citizens and businesses. This transition has also given rise to numerous policy issues regarding how to foster innovation and added economic welfare in this vital sector.
