The article reports on the need for venture capitalists (VC) to push the next U.S. administration to look at the economics of innovation, according to the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation. If VC want to follow a strict market economy, they are likely to support Republican Senator John McCain who plans to stimulate innovation via tax incentives. On the other hand, if they believe government should partner with the private sector in setting an innovation agenda, then they are likely to support Democratic Senator Barack Obama.
