    “Unleashing the creativity of a new generation of inventors may be the single most important educational and policy task before us today.”

    Why is it that leftists constantly want more of the incompetent Big Government Monopoly mucking about in areas which are better left to the free market? What is needed is for the big decaying carcass of Leviathan to get out of the way, and let the free market do its thing. It is the “Feedback of Competition” that forces continuous improvements in Quality, Service, and Price in the free market, the Government Monopoly doesn’t have it and never will. Of the examples of innovation provided and alluded to in the article, not a single one was assisted by the Government Monopoly’s involvement. Absolutely no Government educational or policy actions will contribute to speeding up innovation, in fact they are already responsible for the decline in public education and the red tape inhibiting new innovations.

      Because it is their raison d’etre.
