Bob Goodwin, senior VP at Killen, said that the continuing economic and currency crisis in Asia, unresolved bank debt problems in Japan, Russian economic collapse and the August-September stock market slide will combine to keep global IT market growth close to 8& in 1998. But higher growth should resume in 1999. Killen said the fundamental forces driving the computer equipment.
