Competitiveness Group To Offer Report On Where 'America Stands'

The Washington-based Council on Competitiveness, a non-partisan public-policy group of America's top business CEOs, university presidents, and labor leaders, will release "Competitiveness Index: Where America Stands" on Monday, Nov. 13.

Council on Competitiveness President Deborah Wince-Smith will outline the findings on American competitiveness with Council Chairman Chad Holliday, CEO of DuPont, and Harvard Business School professor Michael Porter, co-author of the index.

"Competitiveness Index: Where America Stands" is the flagship report of the Council on Competitiveness, which marks its 20th anniversary this year.

The index spotlights obvious and less obvious changes in the global economy and their powerful impact on America and Americans. The 2006 version of the index is unique because it's the first in-depth assessment of the American competitiveness landscape since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the organization says.

Agree that the just released Competitiveness Index--while a useful perspective--reports more on the obvious. A key challenge as the US economy repositions for innovation is a deeper understanding of innovation drivers, the private sector innovation process and the downstream linkages to economic output and social outcomes. I am reminded of Albert Einstein's comment that we count what does not matter and don't count what matters. Congratulations to the Council on Competitiveness on a fascinating and, thankfully, outside the beltway view of innovation at its 20th anniversary and tribute to founder John Young. Egils Milbergs, former executive director, President's Commission on Industrial Competitiveness. (1983-1985)
