Notes
  • Purpose – This paper tests the hypothesis that more information via higher levels of diffusion of ICT: a non-income influence, leads to an improvement in societal well being using data from a large sample of low-income countries. Design/​methodology/​approach – The empirical procedure utilises a pooled cross section time wise autoregressive model to test the effects of information and communications technology (ICT) on economic well being. Findings – The findings here provide strong support that the diffusion of the new ICT positively contribute to societal economic well being. Practical implications – The implication of the findings is that low-income countries, in particular, should quickly move to seize the opportunity to develop their ICT infrastructure given its beneficial welfare effects. Originality/​value – The paper examines the effect of ICT on well being.
