A Strategy for American Innovation: Driving towards Sustainable Growth and Quality Jobs
Executive Office of the President
Since taking office, President Obama has taken historic steps to lay the foundation for the innovation economy of the future. The Obama Innovation Strategy builds on well over $100 billion of Recovery Act funds that support innovation, additional support for education, infrastructure and others in the Recovery Act and the President's Budget, and novel regulatory and executive order initiatives. It seeks to harness the inherent ingenuity of the American people and a dynamic private sector to ensure that the next expansion is more solid, broad-based, and beneficial than previous ones. It focuses on critical areas where sensible, balanced government policies can lay the foundation for innovation that leads to quality jobs and shared prosperity. It has three parts: (1) Invest in the Building Blocks of American Innovation; (2) Promote Competitive Markets that Spur Productive Entrepreneurship; and (3) Catalyze Breakthroughs for National Priorities. (Contains 1 figure and 5 boxes.)
