Abstract

The decade of the 1990s represents one of the longest periods of sustained prosperity in the post-World War II era. Unemployment rates have fallen to unprecedented sustained lows. A "New Economy" of highly technical occupations relies heavily on a virtual world where paper transactions increasingly are becoming obsolete. This has contributed to phenomenal growth in the traded value of Internet businesses and "dot.com" companies, leading to an incredible accumulation of wealth among young entrepreneurs and those who have invested in the New Economy.
