Is the United States Losing Its Edge in Science and Technology? Research Brief
Galama, Titus; Hosek, James
RAND Corporation
The United States continues to lead the world in science and technology. It generally benefits from the influx of foreign science and engineering students and workers, and it will likely continue to benefit from the development of new technologies by other nations, as long as it maintains the capability to acquire and implement such technologies. However, U.S. leadership in science and technology must not be taken for granted. This research brief examines the claim that the United States is losing its position as a global leader in science and technology and offers policy recommendations to address such concerns. (Contains 2 figures.) [This research brief describes work documented in "U.S. Competitiveness in Science and Technology," by Titus Galama and James Hosek, 2008 (ED501772).]
