Paper presented at the Annual American Political Science Association conference, Chicago 1st September 2004. Panel 25-2 'Digital Policy Issues: Inequality, E-government', 4th Sept.

This paper examines the relationship between the power of the IT industry and government IT performance across countries. Using a qualitative comparative analysis approach 'fuzzy set social science', we characterise the power of the IT industry and government IT performance using three variables each, and argue a negative association, meaning that in countries with a powerful IT industry, government IT performance tends to be less satisfactory.
