Wherever I go in any whichever country I hear the buzz - lets invest in education and internet/computing technologies - our future would be prosperous. It makes eminent sense to understand where things stand on soem of these dimensions. European countries and Singapore have surpassed the United States in their ability to exploit information and communication technology, according to a new survey. The United States, which topped the World Economic Forum's "networked readiness index" in 2006, slipped to seventh. The study, largely blamed increased political and corporate interference in the judicial system. The Report is produced by the World Economic Forum in cooperation with INSEAD, the leading international business school, and is sponsored this year by Cisco. The report is jointly edited by Soumitra Dutta of INSEAD, and Irene Mia of the World Economic Forum. As Klaus Shwab points out, policymakers and business leaders recognize the need to create an enabling environment to support the adoption of technologies and spread their benefits across all sectors of society.The importance of networked readiness, especially at the national level, has achieved prominence on the public policy agenda, with the realization that the tools provided by ICT can help countries fulfill their national potential and enable a better quality of life for their citizens.
