Significant numbers of the innovative products that are available in the world, (especially in the IT world) appear to originate in the USA. Is this true?

On this Thanksgiving Day in the USA, when we expect there to be very few of our USA friends taking part, let's discuss innovation outside the USA, both in absolute, and in relative, terms.

These are some of the questions that we might like to ponder:

  • How does innovation in the US compare with innovation in other countries?
  • Comparing innovation in the USA with other countries. What is different? What is better? What is worse?
  • At which stages of the product life cycle is the US better or worse at innovation than other countries?
  • In which industry sectors is the US better or worse at innovation than other countries?
  • How is the situation expected to change in the future?
