Abstract

The production function is impacted by three elements: capital, labor, and Total Factor Productivity (TFP). TFP defines this portion of production that is not explained by either capital or labor. I have identified the variable TFP as my dependent variable, using cross-country panel data. To determine if the presence of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), specifically Internet, is impactful on TFP and economic growth across countries, I have regressed Internet and other control variables against TFP. Defining the impacts of ICT factors will help identify sources of improvement to increase economic growth in lesser developed countries.
