The Global Innovation Index 2012

The Global Innovation Index 2012 - RF CafeINSEAD, "The Business School for the World," located in France, has just released its 5th annual publication of The Global Innovation Index 2012. The study analyzes a country's ability to foster invention and innovation. For the second year in a row, Switzerland lead in overall innovation performance. The U.S. squeaked into last place within the top 10, with even Ireland (no disrespect meant to the Emerald Isle) squarely whooping us. Canada came in at #12. Of EUR (European) countries Switzerland leads at #1, the U.S. leads NA (N. America - real difficult) at #10, Israel tops the NAWA (North Africa-West Asia) region at #17, Singapore (#3) leads SEAO (South East Asia Outlook), Chile (#39) tops the LCN (Latin America and the Caribbean) region, and India, #64, rules CSA (Central and Southern Asia). As usual, I blame the pathetic politicians for utterly destroying the country's ability to create and produce. Their overbearing regulations, obsession with 'diversity,' social engineering, national self-flagellation, and pandering to leeches is killing us.
