Internet Money for "Me" but Not for "Thee"

"Will the Internet usher in a new economic growth explosion? Quite possibly, but it hasn’t delivered
very good macroeconomic performance over the last decade.

As for users, the Internet has benefited the well-educated and the curious to a disproportionate degree, but apparently not enough to bolster median income." -- Incomes Are Stuck on Technology’s Plateau - NYTimes.com
