The U.S. Loss of Innovation

Competitive advantage can come in many forms: strategic, tactical, even financial. The U.S. is slowly loosing its competitive advantage in each category, the most recent being the U.S. loss of competitive advantage in innovation:

The report by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation found that the United States ranked sixth among 40 countries and regions, based on 16 indicators of innovation and competitiveness. They included venture capital investment, scientific researchers, spending on research and educational achievement.

Americans were given a great opportunity with the country, and they are slowly pissing it away.
