How does the technological progress in telecommunications contribute to the Chinese national economic growthAuthor(s): Yin Lei,Yu Hong
This study focuses upon the nexus between the factor contribution rates and the growth rate of the Chinese economy. By comparing Solow residual method and Feeder model, we empirically investigate the contribution rate of the telecommunication technology progress to the Chinese economic growth. The results show that the contribution of the industry accounts for as high as 9.87% of the Chinese national economic growth. We argue that a vigorous development of internet communications and 4G technologies may considerably add to the economic development of a county.
