ACS Capitol Hill Briefing — Measuring Economic Growth: R&D Investments

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 24 gennaio 2014

washingtonWASHINGTON The American Chemical Society (ACS) Science & the Congress Project invites news media to attend a luncheon briefing on “Measuring Economic Growth: R&D Investments.” It will be held Thursday, Jan. 30, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Senate Russell Office Building 385. Please RSVP to briefing is sponsored by the ACS Science & the Congress Project.
To assess the size and health of the U.S. economy, economists and policymakers frequently do so by evaluating our gross domestic product (GDP). As a result of an important accounting change instituted by the Commerce Department on July 31, 2013, the economic impact of public and private scientific and engineering research and innovation (R&D) on GDP can now be better characterized. By treating R&D and creative works as investments with future payoffs, policymakers, industry leaders and government officials will be able to make better decisions on job creation, research and education priorities, and discretionary budgets. This panel will explore what better R&D measurements mean for small businesses, industry, state and national economic leaders. The briefing will feature the following panelists and an open discussion:
Moderator: Stephen Merrill, Ph.D., The National Academies, Board on Science, Technology, and Economic Policy (STEP)
• Carol Corrado, Ph.D., McDonough School of Business, Georgetown University
• Martin Fleming, Ph.D., IBM
• Steve Landefeld, Ph.D., Bureau of Economic Analysis)
• Andrew Lo, Ph.D., Laboratory for Financial Engineering, MIT Sloan School of Management
