摘要: In a global market, how does policy influence innovation on a national level? Machiavelli considered this question in his deliberations on the creation of a new order: “There is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than the creation of a new order. […] Whenever the enemies have the ability to attack the innovator they do so with the passion of partisans, while the others defend him sluggishly, so that the innovator and his party alike are vulnerable.” Nicolo Machiavelli, The Prince As globalization continues to expand our economic borders, what role does policy legislation in a national context play in fostering innovation, and what impact does that innovation policy have on that country’s economy? In an increasingly borderless world where the transfer of knowledge and information is growing rapidly, what is the logic behind government investment in knowledge appropriation if that knowledge is going to vanish into global-related processes? The United States is a prime example for studying the impact of innovation, and will serve as the focus of this study. As a country of immigrants, the United States has drawn ideas from all over the world through the diversity of its population, and those ideas have given rise to innovations that have changed the world. Innovation is the development of new ideas, products or processes. The factors that influence and promote innovation are great, but we will limit our focus to the policies related to innovation, their effects on the development of innovation, and the impact of those policies on the economy.
