Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the changes in occupational and labor structures in the transition to an information economy in newly industrialized countries (NICs) such as Taiwan. NICs, like Taiwan, have been heavily investing in the deployment of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for over a decade. However, there have been very few systematic studies of whether countries like Taiwan have transitioned from an industrial to an information economy and what changes has this transition brought about in the labor force. The high level of dependence on ICTs in the economy and production are two of the most important characteristics of contemporary capitalism (Castells, 1996; Shiller, 1999). For this reason, the influence of ICTs on social, economic and cultural facets has consistently attracted the attention of the academic world in developed countries. However, the specific associations between ICTs, labor, work, wage structure and income inequality in developing or NICs remain unclear (Galbraith, 2000; Galbraith & Berner, 2001) and still need to be investigated. This paper investigates 2 broad questions in relation to the influences of ICTs in Taiwan: first, to what extent has Taiwan made the transition to an information economy? And, second, what changes have occurred in labor productivity, employment trends, and wage structure in Taiwan during this transition?
