(b) SUMMARY


Information and communication technologies have become one of the most potent ways to accelerate development and reduce poverty in the world. But it’s also a matter of making sure that these technologies narrow the income and wealth gap. This issue does not demand expensive solutions because addressing it does not mean showering poor countries with donated phones and PCs. It means helping them develop themselves into efficient users of new technologies. Indeed there are both advantages and disadvantages of such new technologies in economic as well as social field so it is surely a responsibility of every individual to make the usage of these technologies wisely.
