Innovation: Among universities but not in corporate

In a recent article in the Zanesville Times Recorder, they look at how Ohio is concentrating on improving it's presence in the nation's leaders when it comes to academic and university innovation. The number of scientists and engineers in the state has risen since 2004. However, to continue with their innovative presence, many of the companies in the state must contribute to the state's innovative ways.

According to Ohio State professor Michael Bills,
"This country was founded on ingenuity, invention and innovation. In the past 20 years, (business has) become exclusively focused on ... productivity and efficiency to the point where we drained any budget for exploration and experimentation."

What do you think of Mr. Bill's opinions?

More money for research does not necessarily mean more innovation. If only it were that easy.
