The research by AidData, a lab at the College of William & Mary in Virginia, is the most .   Market-oriented reforms were a key feature of the development model that was followed in almost all EU CESEE countries from the mids, spurring productivity gains and access to foreign technology and capital. However, in most non-EU countries in the region, typically the catching-up process gained speed only later.

    Until recently, American perceptions of Chinese technology tended to be either hopeful or dismissive. On the hopeful side, the information revolution was taken as a sure drive of greater freedom.. “Imagine if the Internet took hold in China,” George W. Bush said in a presidential debate in China was a world leader in science and technology until the early years of the Ming dynasty. Chinese discoveries and Chinese innovations such as papermaking, printing, the compass, and gunpowder (the Four Great Inventions) contributed to the economic development in East Asia, the Middle East and e scientific activity started to decline in the fourteenth century.

Marshall Breeding writes: “The library technology industry took some significant turns in Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, acquired Innovative Interfaces and shifted the balance of power, strengthening Ex Libris’s position in technology for academic libraries and propelling it as a major player in public libraries. This move narrows the slate of competitors in an industry already.
