Clayton, D. (2005) The consumption of radio broadcast technologies in Hong Kong, c.1930-1960. Economic History Review, 57 (4). pp. 691-726. ISSN 0013-0117
This article uses previously under-exploited quantitative and qualitative primary sources in Hong Kong, the US, and the UK to chronicle how radio broadcast technologies extended in a Less Developed Country. As incomes were rising and the price of radio receiving sets was falling, demand-side forces were strong in Hong Kong. Yet, these forces alone cannot explain the pattern of diffusion observed. Innovations accelerated the take-up of radios. The liberalization and de-regulation of radio broadcasting provided pre-requisites for these supply-side shifts.
