Consumer Electronics Association CEO Gary Shapiro makes a clear, focused and unabashedly conservative case for his central themes: The United States can come back from its current weak economic position, and innovation is the key to success. Shapiro has been involved with innovation throughout his career and has a knack for boiling complex situations down to clear and enthusiastically right-leaning statements. Building more nuclear power plants might not be a very popular idea for a while after Japan’s Fukushima disaster, but the problems Shapiro mentions are definitely worth discussing even if you disagree with the solutions he proposes. getAbstract recommends this book to those interested in innovation and in Shapiro’s notions regarding how the US can effect economic recovery.
In this summary, you will learn
- How innovation can help America achieve a comeback,
- What went wrong with the US economy and
- What government and private industry can do to help reinvigorate innovation.
