The article focuses on the eight-point plan issued by the Information Technology and Innovation Forum (ITIF) for the next U.S. administration. The technology group said the government should double the federal research and development (R&D)tax credit to make the country a stronger magnet for internationally mobile R&D. According to ITIF President Robert Atkinson, the country ended with innovation in the pseudo economy of financial derivatives because the economy was not focused on robust innovation in the real economy.
