There’s a global race on right now where technology and innovation are concerned and America is in danger of “losing” that race. While other nations around the world are strategizing to prioritize technology and innovation to better their economies, our guests today say that America lacks in innovation policy and that this may be what contributed to the Great Recession and to our slow recovery. We’ll learn the importance of innovation with the authors of Innovation Economics: The Race for Global Advantage.
