Eli Dourado and James Pethokoukis: How to Make America Innovate Again

Summary:
To many, it seems as though America has failed to live up to its potential over the past several decades, with far less to show for its innovative efforts than one might have expected a half century ago.

To explore why America has failed to “build” in the past — and how it may reprioritize innovation going forward — I’m speaking today with Eli Dourado. Eli is a senior research fellow at the Center for Growth and Opportunity at Utah State University, where he focuses on the technology, innovation, and economic growth. Previously, he was a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. You can also
