Innovation Strategy (2)
Need to avoid UN "Technology Achievement Index" (TAI) as measure.
8 parameters measured:
patents granted, receipts of royalties + License fees, Internet hosts/1000 people, high/medium tech exports, #telephones/1000 people, electricity consumption, years of schooling, enrollment in post secondary science
Doesn't differentiate: increases in poor quality and questionable types of patents, alternative tech business models, or use of inefficient electrical devices.
