Picking Up the Pace: The Commercial Challenge to American Innovation.
Council on Competitiveness, Washington, DC.
Success in the rapid commercialization of technology has changed over the years as competition from foreign countries has increased. The United States has been slow to respond to the changing nature of the technological competition. This report focuses on the role of the federal government in facilitating and removing impediments to the commercial application of technology. Issues discussed include: (1) foreign competition; (2) the commercialization problem; (3) the fragmented public policy environment; (4) the new developments in U.S. technology policy; and (5) the regulatory and macroeconomic framework. A number of findings and recommendations are presented. (CW)
