An intense race for global economic advantage is under way. The race will be won by nations with innovation-based economies and economic policies. In a new book on sale now, well-known innovation experts Rob Atkinson and Stephen Ezell explore how a weak U.S. innovation economy not only contributed to the Great Recession but is delaying recovery. With sobering data and historical insights, they contrast U.S. innovation policy with that of other developed and developing nations to make a compelling case for a new bipartisan national innovation agenda. "Innovation Economics: The Race for Global Advantage" is a detailed, pragmatic road map for countries to follow if their leaders wish to retain or in many cases regain global innovation advantage by 2020, as well as to maximize the global supply of innovation and promote sustainable globalization.
