Celebrants and skeptics alike have produced valuable analyses of the Internet’s effect on us and our world, oscillating between utopian bliss and dystopian hell. But according to Robert W. McChesney, arguments on both sides fail to address the relationship between economic power and the digital world.

McChesney’s award-winning Rich Media, Poor Democracy skewered the assumption that a society drenched in commercial information is a democratic one. In Digital Disconnect McChesney returns to this provocative thesis in light of the advances of the digital age, incorporating capitalism into the heart of his analysis. He argues that the sharp decline in the enforcement of antitrust violations, the increase in patents on digital technology and proprietary systems, and other policies and massive indirect subsidies have made the Internet a place of numbing commercialism. A small handful of monopolies now dominate the political economy, from Google, which garners an astonishing 97 percent share of the mobile search market, to Microsoft, whose operating system is used by over 90 percent of the world’s computers.

Internet influye en nuestras vidas y en nuestras costumbres, en la forma de buscar información, de entretenernos, de comunicarnos y por supuesto ha hecho que aparezcan nuevas formas de comprar y vender bienes y servicios de todo tipo. Estos cambios comportan grandes beneficios, no sólo para los usuarios sino también para las empresas que han encontrado grandes oportunidades en los desarrollos de las comunicaciones. Estas tecnologías están al alcance tanto de las grandes empresas como de las pequeñas. Cualquiera de estos adelantos puede estar al alcance de otras empresas o clientes potenciales dispersos alrededor del mundo. De este modo, se han desarrollado un gran número de operaciones comerciales. Pero así como crecen los beneficios, esta nueva realidad presenta un desafío para las autoridades fiscales, puesto que es difícil crear un sistema legal-impositivo adecuado a los nuevos tipo de comercio. El comercio electrónico va creciendo cada día, puesto que es una forma cómoda y rápida de adquirir lo que necesitamos sin movernos de casa, aunque crece poco a poco debido a la inseguridad social en este método.
