New report looks at economic benefits of mobile phones for those at the bottom of the pyramid
The report, published by LIRNEasia, states that although anecdotal evidence shows that mobile phones are economically beneficial to base-of-the-pyramid users, there is little empirical evidence to reinforce this claim.
The authors conducted a study on mobile phone usage in five Asian countries and used the results to analyze the benefits — economic and otherwise — of mobiles on users at the bottom of the pyramid.
