Bayh-Dole focused on harmonizing agency patent policies and distributing opportunities to promote inventions to universities across the country. It wasn't directly concerned with innovation, but with using the patent system to promote use of inventions, development of collaborative relations with industry, and support for U.S. small business and U.S. labor. The law itself hasn't constrained innovation - but the way in which universities have implemented practice under it has had mixed outcomes. In response to the law, many universities established Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) to act as a central reporting agency ...
During his lifetime, he eliminated the factional fighting at the court, introduced innovations into the bureaucracy and the judiciary, and made efforts to "modernize" Nepal. He remains one of the most important figures in Nepalese history , though modern historians have also blamed Jang Bahadur for setting up the dictatorship that repressed the nation for more than 100 years and left it in a primitive economic condition. Others exclusively blame his nephews, the Shumsher Ranas, for Nepal's dark period of history.

Sierra Club Green Home » Blog Archive » It's Global Warming, Stupid!
Presidential candidates traditionally blow off the environment as an issue. But can they continue to dither as the world heats up? Sierra asks four savvy election junkies when we’ll see the campaign slogan: It’s Global Warming, Stupid! This article originally appears in the January/February 2008 issue of Sierra Magazine. “What should be the nation’s top concern?” When pollsters pose such a question to voters, few, historically, have answered “the environment.” Yet when asked specifically about how important global warming will be to their vote for U.S. president in 2008, more than half ... market research, surveys and trends

Telco policies are night and day but just one has a bright future
THE Coalition's $6.3 billion attempt to create an alternative telecommunications policy to the Gillard government's $43 billion national broadband network lacks vision, is half-baked and stuck in the past. The policy is also riddled with inconsistencies. But worst of all, it fails to address the fundamental problem with telecommunications in this country: Telstra's dominance, which has stymied competition and innovation and left Australia with one of the slowest broadband speeds in countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. This policy will cost $6.3 billion over seven years, spent ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Letters: Progress begins with new charter
My employer, First Tennessee Bank, has consistently been ranked as one of the 100 Best Places to Work by Fortune magazine. There are certainly other prominent companies in Memphis that offer career opportunities as well. Yet many of the young men and women who grow up in Memphis choose to plant roots in other cities: Charlotte, Austin, Nashville and Atlanta, to name just a few. Crime, educational challenges and lack of economic development are killing Memphis and Shelby County. Our government setup is part of the reason. I don't think a new charter will cure all the problems in Memphis and Shelby County, but it's ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Government's Incentive to Expand
     Two recent reports released by the Joint Economic Committee (JEC) demonstrated that an excessively large government undermines economic growth and retards wage growth.[ 1 ] There are several reasons why excessive government diminishes economic well-being. One important reason for the negative effects of excessive government is the different incentives facing bureaucrats, politicians, and entrepreneurs.

Bureaucracies manage processes for the implementation of policies and procedures and are an essential aspect of all organizations. Problems arise when bureaucracies become self-serving and self-perpetuating. A bloated bureaucracy is inefficient, consuming unnecessary resources, slowing down process response times and creating inertia to innovation. In order for an organization to thrive it must readily adapt to changing circumstances, it must innovate. It is important that leaders promote a vision of their organizations in which resources devoted to implementation and innovation are balanced to serve the stake-holders' ...
