Abstract [en]

Economies in knowledge-based societies grow faster than in previous agricultural and industrial societies. This growth is based on the information and communications technology (ICT) development. The production function of ICT industries shows increasing returns to scale. The network effect of ICT development causes increasingly accelerated production and consumption values as the market gets larger in all supply and demand aspects. Thus, ICT development is the fundamental driving force of the faster economic growth, accelerated by increasing returns to scale and the network effect. Early investment in ICT achieves steep economic growth. The definition and characteristics of a knowledge-based society are given, and the nature, causes, and patterns of the faster acceleration of it are explained
