Mobile Economy Project Launches December 8

How Mobile Technology is Reshaping the Global Landscape

On December 8, the Center for Technology Innovation at The Brookings Institution will launch a new mobile economy project, which will examine and document the impact of the mobile revolution on the economies of developed and developing countries, with a forum exploring how mobile technology can ease the everyday lives of Americans.

With smart phones now outnumbering personal computers, there has been a sea change in the way people access and share information. Powerful mobile devices and sophisticated digital applications enable users to build businesses, access financial and health care records, expand educational opportunities, conduct research and complete transactions anytime, anywhere.

Darrell West, vice president and director of Governance Studies, will moderate a discussion with Chris Dede of Harvard University and Allan Friedman of the Brookings Institution. Peggy Johnson, executive vice president and president of Global Market Development at Qualcomm, will provide opening remarks.

After the program, panelists will take questions from the audience. Participants may follow the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #CTIMobile.

This event will be webcast live. To receive a reminder about the webcast click here and  for more information and to attend in person, go to Register.
