Design and invention can power us out of recession | The Guardian | Product Design & Development | Scoop.it

Nature or nurture? Inventiveness relies on both. A vibrant economy built on the export of new technology must have inventive companies and institutions at its heart, but also encourage the people who develop the ideas; we need more engineers. Ideas create wealth, and the intellectual property they develop not only improves lives, but will also power us out of recession.
