possibly, depending on the level of telepathy, one might surmise that technology would develop more quickly, as information from diverse sources may be more easily synthesized into a final product.
the premise also assumes that conflict is reduced by open communication. imagine, if you will, a scenario in which you and I both implicitly understand each others' political viewpoints, but one of us is a radical conservative, and the other a radical liberal. open communication would not resolve our fundamental difference in viewpoint.
