The move towards achieving the information society is not without certain consequences, particularly for government taxation, regional development, and employment. Since some analysts would perceive this investigation to be looking into the ‘impact’ of the previously illustrated socio-economic and technological changes, a specific aspect of these developments is found to be unavoidable and reliant on the ‘best use’ of technological opportunity. Our examination in this chapter draws attention to the implications of the said changes for the development of skills and the growth experienced by employment. We also explore the relations between the development of information infrastructure and the development of the non-profit sector, referred to as the ‘Third Sector’, while also looking into the initiatives in developing new technology applications and how e-commerce requires changes in the tax revenues collection.

Keywords:   e-commerce, Third Sector, non-profit sector, skill development, employment growth, government taxation
