A US report issued in August 2007 by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, Leadership Under Challenge: Information Technology R&D in a Competitive World, states that “leadership in science and technology—and networking and information technology (NIT) in particular—is essential to the Nation’s global competitiveness and economic prosperity.” To what extent do national interests compete against the interests of other entities such as multinational corporations and organizations, and of the public good, in the global economy? How do policies on access to digital content and services affect downstream markets? Can universal access to information fuel sustainable worldwide economic growth? Panelists will describe the priorities of their respective organizations and discuss these larger questions in a national and international context.
