COMPUTERS AND THE PROBLEM 2000 IN THE BUSINESS WORLD
COMPUTERS AND THE PROBLEM 2000 IN THE BUSINESS WORLD Computers play a huge role in Government, Economy, and Financial affairs. Based on the information concerning the year 2000 computer crash project (y2k), people are realizing how much of the economy depends on computers. The age of electronics and more specifically, computers, has caused a tremendous shift in the way we do business today. Today, many business people wouldn't be able to function efficiently without communications as we know it

As a result some 1.6 million people fly on 4,000 aircraft every day. Airlines carried 643 million passengers in 1998, a 25% increase over 1993 and the FAA estimates that the nation??s airline system will have to accommodate 917 million passengers by the year 2008.
