Increasing investments in ICT is often premised on the assumption that such investments will lead to improvements in productivity and other aspects of development at the firm and national levels. However, it is reasonable to expect that any such impact will vary depending on the context including the ability to modify and manipulate a chain of intermediate links within the “investments in ICT outcomes of investments in ICT” process. In this paper we explore impacts of three constructs of the Networked Readiness Index (GIT Report, 2010) on three precursors of GDP - State of the Labor Market, International Trade, and Economic Well-Being.
