Telecommunications is the central nervous system of the American economy. It has revolutionized virtually every aspect of our lives, from education and health care, to our work and home lives. Between 1995 and 2004, advances in telecommunications and information technology were responsible for as much as 75% of U.S. labor productivity gains.
Maintaining America's position as a global leader in telecommunications is key to sustaining real economic growth and to improving our country's standard of living.
To ensure that our nation creates an economic climate that fosters innovation and investment in its telecommunications industry, and to educate Congress and the public about the benefits of an economically robust telecommunications system, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has formed the TeleCONSENSUS coalition.
