A case for national innovation incentives
Priming the pump of American innovation is going to mean getting the government involved, Derek Thompson argues. With Wall Street luring away the nation’s geniuses, Thompson argues that the government should be looking for ways to make science and technology careers hugely profitable so that the best minds will be lured back to technical professions. He suggest offering government innovation incentives, cutting taxes, creating a secretary of innovation and boosting education standards to bring the U.S. back to the forefront. TheAtlantic.com (6/5)
