Abstract for: Modeling Access to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for Assessing a Penetration Policy

This paper develop a model to access to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) on development and to assess policy for the penetration of such technologies in Colombia. The model is based on concepts of bounded rationality, i.e. the mental processing capacity and information availability are limited. The model is used for increasing our understanding the complexity of the problem and for policy assessment. It is shown that some policies may increase the penetration of ICT when based on people’s opportunities and desires.
