The Race to Innovate
October 6th in Washington, D.C.
The United States is losing ground quickly in the innovation sweepstakes to Japan, Denmark and other nations. There’s nothing mysterious about why: these and other nations have designed and funded federal policies to spur innovation, and we have not. The Fall 2009 issue of Democracy: A Journal of Ideas features a symposium on “The Race to Innovate,” and examines what we should be doing in areas like finance, manufacturing, education, and creating new institutions that will help the private sector move forward.
On October 6th, please join Democracy: A Journal of Ideas and the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation for a compelling forum to discuss these ideas.
