Federal government investments in intangibles: FY2022

Today I am releasing the latest analysis of the U.S. federal government’s proposed investments in intangible as outlined in the President’s budget request for FY 2022. This request continues the increase in intangible investments, rising to over a quarter (28%) of discretionary spending and over two-fifths (42%) for nondefense discretionary spending. Yet, the federal government has no coherent set of policies for fostering intangible assets nor any management plans in place for the appropriate utilization of these intangible assets in any systematic way for revenue generation.
