  • U.S. Losing Pace as an Economic Power

    Otellini says the U.S. is losing pace as an economic power. If the country is to even remain competitive, it must recommit to long term investment in education, technology and research, he adds.

  • Educating Future Leaders

    The need for a clear and enduring strategy that promotes innovation and investment is obvious, but what''s more critical, Otellini says, is educating the next generation of industry leaders.

  • American Competitiveness

    West says Otellini''s remarks stressed that American competitiveness is contingent on long term investment in technology and innovation from both the private and public sectors alike.

Despite an economy that has started to regain its footing since the acute crisis one year ago, concerns about the future persist among business executives as well as government leaders, economists and, of course, the public. Future economic health and growth can only be ensured through a long-term, strategic approach to confronting the challenge.

On February 23, the Brookings Institution hosted Intel President and CEO Paul S. Otellini for an address on rebuilding the foundations of America's growth based on investment in innovation, and in developing and engaging new talent.

In his remarks, Otellini described the need to create a culture of investment in the United States, including the role for American businesses to partner with the government in promoting education, innovation and the creation of new business opportunities in order to maintain a globally competitive economy.

After the program, Otellini took audience questions.
