Your question is a very broad one. It is true that without agreement to
follow core standards such as URIs and HTTP, the Web would not have
worked --- people would have found themselves isolated. Imagine a
telephone system where you cannot call some people on the planet. It is
much less useful than one where you can call anyone with a phone number
anywhere in the world from any phone. That is the value of standards.

Tim Berners-Lee talked about the economic importance of standards 
at W3C's Tenth Anniversary. Perhaps his slides will be of interest to

Unfortunately I do not have any articles or books to suggest on the
importance of standards to the growth of the Web. I believe with a
search engine you will find a number of useful resources.

Best of luck,
