IMO - the focus on patents is quite misleading. Anyone can apply for a US patent - doesn't mean the invention was developed here - just that the patent owner wants to access the US market.laborating to better the world.


That's not the way that this one works.
The charts are based upon the place of residence of the inventor and only list inventions patented in multiple countries.

I think it was interesting to read the national statistics in regards to the sciences as it was math compared to many other countries around the world; America seems to be declining steadily over the years and the obvious suspect may very well be the disinterest in investing upon American citizens when these very citizens who do graduate at a University level are much more expensive to cater to compared to a foriegn worker of the same level.

Economins plays a pivotal part in this aswell.

This country is de-evolving into teaching creation theory and the president is concerned about the lives of stem cells so prohibits further research. No wonder we're losing our tech lead.

Lysergic: You have voted Lysergic for the Way Above Top Secret award. You have two more votes this month.

Thats the problem. How can we proceed with science when religion puts a halt to everything. We should be much further ahead.

The president does not oppose stem cell research. What he does oppose is government funding for stem cell research relying on fetal cell beyond the line that already exist. From what I understand the state of the art is such now that fetal cells are no longer necessary.

Embryonic Stem Cell Research Is Unneeded
