The Internet is an indispensable platform for international commerce, trade, communications, and data-sharing affecting U.S. businesses of all types and sizes. This technological phenomenon has been important not only for the technology companies which commercialized the World Wide Web nearly two decades ago, and disruptive startups which follow in their pioneering footsteps, but also for traditional industries such as manufacturing, retail, grocery chains, agribusiness, finance, marketing, insurance, energy, and health care, to name a few. Digital commerce and trade have been a boon to the U.S. economy, raising real U.S. GDP and contributing to an estimated 2.4 million new jobs.
