Recent research has shown the empirical evidence for globalization of
corporate innovation is very limited.
And as a corollary, the market for technologies is shrinking.

As a concerned citizen, it is important for America to provide systematic research grants
for our scientists.

I believe there will always be a need for us
to have a well-articulated innovation policy with emphasis on human resource development.

Nobody ever had it nor will ever have it.

Makes even more amazing how scientists make their researches, considering how uneven their funds are.

The Bush administration was the most Anti-Science government in US history.

Governing power and scientific advances are always intertwined in history.

Obama has made great advances already by appointing Steven Chu for Secretary of Energy. He has a Nobel Prize in Physics. It should be different under him. Bush's appointements to Scientific roles were laughable, the Minister of Energy was agaisnt the idea of global warming. It took Bush over a year to even appoint alot of his Scientific posts.

There was almost no funding to scientific research under Bush. This has stunted the USA's growth in a dramatic effect. China and India and Korea have even moved ahead of the US is scientific advances.
