The Commerce Department released a report on U.S. competitiveness Friday that highlights the need for federal investments in basic research, science education and infrastructure like broadband and the electric grid.
The comprehensive report on competitiveness was mandated as part of the reauthorization of the America Competes Act signed by President Obama one year ago. The report's key findings emphasize how federal investments can pay broad and unforeseen dividends, like the invention of the Internet.
Curious how and when this is going to happen.
“We need solutions to America’s economic competitiveness problems and this report is a good first step,” said Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.).
