I believe the most important thing Americans must do is to secure their economic well-being in an increasingly challenging, complex world.

For years, I have been a skeptic that China could out-innovate the United States. A top-down Communist Party system dependent on state-owned enterprises could not allow a flowering of cutting-edge new ideas.
