Restoring U.S. Competitiveness: Navigating a Path Forward Through Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Source: Center for Public Policy Innovation

From the report:

Over the last several decades technology has advanced in ways that our forefathers could never have imagined. However, in recent years, antiquated policies have caused the entrepreneurial ecosystem to become stagnant, thereby threatening the economic growth and innovative spirit that made the United States into an industrial powerhouse.

At CPPI’s recent Public Policy Forum on innovation & entrepreneurship, Peggy Johnson said that federal policies are an important catalyst for bringing about the next generation of innovators, commenting, “Federal government policies played a key role in the success of [Qualcomm’s] inventions, and they are critical to enabling the next generation of U.S. innovation.” Qualcomm’s success is a testament to what is possible when government policies in the areas of immigration, education, tax reform, and R&D are geared towards fostering economic growth in the United States.
