Effect of Big Data in Promoting Inclusive Development



This essay intends to promote inclusive development by utilizing big data as an alternative to economic growth, under the contexts of the greater social disparities coming along with economic growth. In the first part, the term of inclusive growth or development is introduced as an alternative model to resolve all the existing problems that are plaguing a wide range of societies in both developing and developed countries, particularly for those new emerging economies. In the second part, the model of inclusive development is placed under the microscopic lens of the coming of big data era. A wide range of empirical evidence collected by communication scholars lend support to the argument that the traditional value of economic growth shall be abandoned in favor of inclusive development for more social justice and equality of the societies, where the big data can serve as an indispensable catalyst in all aspects of people’s life.
