E-commerce is starting to find a place in some of the world's emerging economies. Governments and businesses in a growing number of developing countries have begun building the infrastructure needed for online commerce, according to a report by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. Governments are more and more aware that this can be a tremendous boon to their economy, said Angel Gonzalez-Sanz, an economist with the UN agency.

I found the report for free online here http://r0.unctad.org/ecommerce/ecommerce_en/edr03_en.htm - they even say they'll send you a free hardcopy if you ask (!?); its also got a nice chapter on free/open source software and why developing countries should use it. The report is very "UN"-ish in language, a bit heavy at times. However, there's no anoying sales pitch like you get in many a consultant's or corporate white paper.

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
