In this New York Times Best-Seller, Gary Shapiro, president of the Consumer Electronics Association, shows us how to return innovation to the center of America's economic policy. America seems to be on a downward slide. Our government spends too much money, our economy creates too little, and we aren't preparing our children to compete in a global marketplace. Yet our politicians--Republican and Democrat alike--just don't get it. While once-great cities fall into decay, Washington thrives, living off the hard work and tax dollars of the private sector. It's time for an American comeback--and it starts with innovation. Throughout its history, America's greatest innovators have been the drivers of our unsurpassed economic success. American innovation transformed a country of ragtag farmers into the epicenter of the world's technological progress. Innovation creates jobs, markets, and new industries where none existed before. Most importantly, innovation moves us forward as a nation, pushing us to succeed and strive for a better tomorrow. In short, innovation is the American Dream.
