Policymaking for Digital Media Growth

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book explains for the first time the 'strategic future grabbing" policymaking system developed by the Irish state aimed at developing high-tech indigenous industries capable of competing globally. It is based on a 10-year study of the Irish state's development of its indigenous digital media industry up to 2004. By the end of the period Ireland had become the digital media capital of Europe playing host to the European headquarters of Google, Facebook, e-Bay as well as indigenous globally competitive industries. The research had unprecendented access to state records, officials, digital media company executives and employees during this period. The book also tracked over the same 10 years the development of a sample of indigenous digital media companies. The book analyses what was the best policymaking strategy that led to their growth.
