Flip Side of the Coin: Negative Socio-Economic Implications of ICT

Sergey Samoilenko

Abstract


While positive impacts of ICT have been noted and subjected to numerous academic inquiries, the negative implications are often swept under the proverbial rug and not given much attention. The subject of the negative impacts of ICT, however, is worth considering, for such impacts are observable in a variety of economies of the world and must be dealt with. An intuitive taxonomy of problems could be created based on four dimensions: social vs. economic implications and intra-economy vs. inter-economy impacts. A set of research suggestions could offer assistance in investigating negative impacts of ICT in a rigorous and relevant to the local context manner.
