Washington, DC — The Information Technology & Innovation Foundation (ITIF) offers a set of actionable proposals to spur innovation, productivity, and competitiveness that the Trump administration can accomplish in its first year.
At the outset of the 2016 presidential campaign, ITIF released a strategy memo titled “Tech Policy 2016: What Presidential Candidates Should Be Talking About.”
“[The strategy memo] outlined an ambitious campaign agenda that hinged on three key themes—fostering innovation, boosting productivity, and competing globally—and it offered a series of specific policy proposals to advance such an agenda.
“That was the poetry we hoped to hear in the campaign. Now that the election is over, it is time for the prose of governing.
“Cutting across all of our recommendations is a basic recognition and a core conviction: America’s economic future will depend on successfully driving innovation, productivity growth, and competitiveness, and to do that, the federal government will need to adopt new and more creative approaches to public policy.
