Why Isn’t New Technology Making Us More Productive?

From a New York Times story by Steve Lohr headlined “Why Isn’t New Technology Making Us More Productive?”:

That belief has inspired a flood of venture funding and company spending. And the payoff, proponents insist, will not be confined to a small group of tech giants but will spread across the economy.

It hasn’t happened yet.
