INNOVATION AND CRITICAL POLICY CHOICES: IS THE UNITED STATES LOSING ITS EDGE?
AUGUST 22-24, 2010
Innovation and technological change are crucial to the nation’s long-run economic health and ability to improve standards of living, as well as to our ability to address national challenges in energy, the environment, health care and other priority areas. The United States has long been a leader in innovation, but there is growing concern that the U.S. is losing its edge. Discussions at TPI’s Aspen Forum explored the state of innovation in the U.S. and how public policy concerning such topics as broadband, competition, intellectual property and data security can create a favorable environment conducive to innovation and entrepreneurship.
