Chill out everyone. Our GDP is still 3x the size of anyone else and we have something that nobody else has. The ability to innovate.

We're losing more of our innovation edge every day...

I don't seeing it as being so significant. From the drug dealer on the corner to the guy selling miles in Lakewood, Americans have entrepreneurship engrained in their DNA.
