Defining Information Technology The IT package used throughout the world has numerous components: hardware, software, services, and communications equipment and networks, just to name a few. IT and communications are often analyzed as a joint sector, but this book disaggregates the two sectors, not only addressing them separately but also making even further distinctions. Much of the first half of the book focuses on IT hardware—where it is produced, who buys it, and how it is used throughout the US economy.

Comparing country rankings for imports and exports points to the importance of two-way trade in IT and communications products, which is a sign of the globalization of production. For some countries, two-way trade goes along with domestic IT and communications spending, while for others that trade is divorced from domestic spending patterns. 1. But Singapore is a huge importer and exporter of IT goods. 1), even though it is an important two-way trader.

Despite its high rank as an exporter, China may not gain the most from its participation in globalized production. That is, even though China probably is the world’s most important production assembly platform for IT and consumer electronics products, it is not necessarily the one with the highest value added on domestic content.
