Part 2, “Theory and Practice of Creative Destruction,” reviews the applicability of the framework to the analysis of telecommunications and Internet-based businesses. Part 3, “The Global Context for Creative Destruction,” explores the institutional context within which creative destruction is achieved by presenting case studies in Latin America Europe, and Asia. Part 4 of the book, “Business Destruction Strategies in the Global Internet Economy,’’ presents alternative strategies for redefining firms and markets coping with the process of creative destruction.

McGarty analyzes an Internet telephony pricing model based on the actual practice of a firm operating in the Page 14 New York local access and long-distance business market. The model illustrates the substantial cost advantage and likely pricing strategies of IP versus circuit switching telecommunications service providers. The analysis has implications for regulators overseeing such competitive dynamics, and for firms seeking to generate revenues from telecommunications services. CREATIVE BUSINESS SURVIVAL STRATEGIES The first four parts of the book describe many of the destructive tendencies engendered by the Schumpeterian process.

McGarty implicitly argues for the value created by the diffusion of the Internet. The creative destruction that leads to the emergence of new networks, with its associated economics, Page 17 allows for an increase in openness of networks and markets and a dramatic lowering of barriers to entry. Implicitly, Lehr supports the creative destruction theory. He considers that the multiple moves along the value chain that result in acquisitions and alliances represent rational moves by firms seeking to reduce cost, promote innovation, and extend market power.
