According to an article in BBC News, the United States has lost its edge as “the world’s primary engine of technology innovation.” They’re reporting that we’re now ranked seventh in the world, at least in terms of impact of technology.
A deterioration of the political and regulatory environment in the US prompted the fall, the report said.
Who ranked higher? Singapore, Denmark, Sweden… but not in that order.
The only good news I saw in the article was that India was ranked 44 and China 59.
