President Obama today pushed his plans to make the nation’s economy more stable in the future by investing in education for high-tech industries.
The president unveiled a new “innovation strategy” that builds on $100 billion of economic stimulus funds to support entrepreneurship, education, infrastructure and other investments.
The plan aims to make the U.S. economy more competitive and help prevent volatile “boom and bust” cycles in the future, Obama said.
Obama reiterated his call for increased investment in green energy technology, electronic health records, manufacturing advanced vehicles and expanding the nation’s broadband Internet network.
“Our strategy begins where innovation so often does: in the classroom and in the laboratory — and in the networks that connect them to the broader economy,” Obama said. “These are the building blocks of innovation: education, infrastructure, and research.”
