Description:

This paper explores the obsolescence of expensive computers and how rampant electronic waste (and "computer dumping") causes great harm to developing nations environmentally, socially, and economically (although these negative phenomena are certainly not limited to them alone). The paper takes a look at the role played by the wealthy parts of the world (and by the computer industry) in perpetuating this problem, at the logistical problems associated with e-waste disposal, at the social and economic risks that also attend e-waste mismanagement as obsolete computer parts (like CRTs) are not adequately disposed of, and - lastly - the paper looks at the economic burden shouldered by consumers in all nations as a result of computer obsolescence. In the end, until the computer industry is pressured to eschew built-in obsolescence for meaningful warranties on all products (and until the disposal technology for e-waste improves) the threats created by e-waste to vulnerable populations will remain.
