Though we live in an era of rapid innovation, the United States has introduced comparatively few commercial innovations within the past decade. Innovation shortfall contributes to weaker trade performance, decreased productivity growth, lower wages and many other economic woes. This study provides insightful recommendations for developing enhanced innovation efforts that could help foster substantial, long-term economic growth.

As a high-wage country, the US relies on its ability to develop innovative products and services in order to compete with low-cost countries such as China, South Korea, India and Brazil. The contributors to this book, all well-known international business scholars, offer a diversity of perspectives on how the US can leverage its capacity for innovation to retain a competitive advantage within the global economy. Topics discussed include strategic organization, corporate leadership and innovation theory, as well as specific innovation challenges facing the US today.

This book will prove an invaluable resource for students and professors of international business, along with those interested in examining how countries can become more economically competitive through increased focus on innovation.
