Small countries that spent heavily on building an internet infrastructure at the pleadings of some businesses have found that the returns aren't what they were expecting. In many countries, people don't feel comfortable conducting any kind of transaction over the internet. They would prefer to know the person personally, and so they don't see how e-commerce can be trustworthy. I wonder if this is just a function of time and education, though. As people become more familiar with how the internet works, they learn (hopefully) how to find sites they can trust as well.
