Report Predicts Continued U.S. Tech Dominance
from the things-might-not-be-so-bad dept
With all the recent fears about how all American tech jobs are going to move to India and China, the Rand Corporation has come out with a report predicting that the US will continue to dominate technology. I tend to agree, but the report probably doesn’t do much to convince those who disagree. It just says that the US will continue to lead because we have a business environment that embraces innovation and change, and doesn’t try to protect our companies in ways that make them uncompetitive. What the article doesn’t answer is how this stops American companies from outsourcing all of their work overseas. Also, it doesn’t account for recent action (such as by the entertainment industry) to try to make American industry more protectionist by propping up obsolete business models.
