Abstract

In this paper we examine determinants of initial adoption and subsequent intensification of corporate use of business practices employing the internet. In contrast to previous examinations that have looked at highest income countries, we study companies in Latin America and the Caribbean. Many variables such as company size and industry use previously identified as influential in high income regions continue to be important determinants. Novel determinants are also found, including informal sector competition and exporting. There are sharp differences in determinants between the two adoption types.
