This report has three parts: an Introduction which summarizes the proceedings and issues associated with the New Economy, followed by the Proceedings themselves, and supplemented by a recent research paper. This report represents the first step of a major research effort by the Board on Science, Technology, and Economic Policy designed to advance our understanding of the factors shaping the New Economy, the metrics necessary to better understand it, and the policies best suited to sustaining the greater productivity and prosperity that it promises.
