This study explores the interdependencies between digitalization, economic policy, and macroeconomic variables of open economies. Digitalization describes the dismantling of information into strings of 0 and 1. To study the phenomenon of digitalization with the instruments of economics, it is split into three components: networks, IT services, and digital goods. This separation corresponds with the layer approach which is based on technological characteristics of data package transport and use via the Internet protocol (IP).
