The perceived phenomenon that huge investments in information technology (IT) over the past four decades have yielded a very small gain in productivity has been dubbed the "IT paradox." Researchers have tried various methods to prove or disprove the "paradox." This article highlights the challenges researchers have faced and proposes a simple theory to explain what seems to be a vanishing contribution of IT to productivity growth.
