What’s the prognosis for America’s innovation future?
That was the topic of an NBC Nightly News report this week that included interviews with MIT Sloan School Professor Edward Roberts and Paul Otellini, Intel’s president and CEO. In the newscast, Roberts made an interesting point about the state of innovation in the U.S.:
“Entrepreneurship is not our shortcoming,” Roberts said. “The shortcomings reside in the large firms who aren’t able to stay with it.”
Otellini, meanwhile, raised concerns that the U.S. is losing ground in its international competitiveness because of high corporate taxes and shortcomings in the American education system for math and science.
