The digital economy will play a major part in rejuvenating productivity and economic growth in Japan. Quantifying the impact of the digital economy can be difficult given that many digital products and services are provided free of charge.

The objective of this report is to inform the debate on how to measure digital economic activity, by providing a robust estimate of the economic impact of Google’s activities on Japan’s digital economy.
