Worth reading

Here is a quick take on three interrelated items worth reading:

Greg Tassey’s paper Rationales and mechanisms for revitalizing US
manufacturing R&D strategies
outlines the importance of manufacturing to a technology-based economy and a new economic framework for policy.

The Geography of Innovation describes the role of regional innovation clusters and how to promote them.

The Power of Place 2.0 summarizes 10 policy ideas for “creating jobs, improving technology commercialization, and building communities of innovation.”

All three are built on the central concept that innovation and intangibles (including knowledge) drive economic growth — the concept that also is at the core of Athena Alliance and our notion of the I-Cubed Economy.
