Independent of effects on GDP, the internet (nasdaq100) has still strongly outperformed the overall US stock market (sp500).

I would call it a tie:   * Since 1972, the Nasdaq 100 has experienced slightly higher annual returns (10.8%) than the S&P 500 (10.5%), but it has also experienced much higher volatility.  * During the bull markets, the Nasdaq 100 has crushed the S&P 500 (the 1990s and the post-2008 market). * However, during bear markets, the S&P 500 has performed much better than the Nasdaq 100 (1973-1974, early 2000s, the 2008 financial crisis). * The Nasdaq 100 beat the S&P 500 in 25 out of these 46 years (54% of years).
