In this report, researchers from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) assess the employment impact in the United Kingdom of investments in three ICT infrastructures: broadband networks, intelligent transportation systems, and the smart power grid, that: (1) contribute to significant immediate direct and indirect job growth in the UK economy; (2) create a “network effect” throughout the economy that creates additional jobs; and (3) provide a foundation for longer term benefits, including government cost savings, economy-wide productivity, and improved quality of life for all.
