World War II seems like a pretty obvious example of successful industrial policy, at least in the sense of government directing science research toward specific goals. This from the new working paper “Organizing Crisis Innovation: Lessons from World War II” by Daniel P. Gross and Bhaven N. Sampat: “The [Office of Scientific Research and Development]’s priorities were demand-driven, focused on solving specific military problems, and led by input from the Armed Services. The bulk of its work was applied in nature, and while basic studies were sometimes needed, the urgency of the crisis meant that it mostly had to take basic science as given and to put it to work.”
And Washington’s effort at Big Science produced many notable successes. In just a half-decade, the paper notes, there were major advances across a range of technologies: radar, electrical engineering, jet propulsion, optics, chemistry, and atomic fission. That final one, of

The Trump administration’s efforts to restrict student visas from countries designated as state sponsors of terrorism might seem like common sense, but, like everything else in an election year, it has become fodder for the partisan meatgrinder. Late last month, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement published a rule change to end indefinite visas for enrolled students originating in countries where visitors often violated the terms of their visas, or countries that are state sponsors of terrorism. None of this, of course, would end the issuance of visas; rather, certain students would have to re-apply after two or four years.
Joe Biden has generally opposed any new controls on foreign students. “Across the world, people come to this country with unrelenting optimism and determination toward the future. They study here, innovate here, they make America who we are. Donald Trump doesn’t get that — we need a president who does,” Biden
Today, International Data Corporation (IDC) announced its IT outlook for 2021 along with top trends and guidance for enterprises as they prepare for The Next Normal.
Recent IDC data shows that actual market performance has been stronger than suggested by survey and market indicators, especially in the U.S., due largely to cloud and remote work support. Service provider investments to meet demand for cloud and digital services are stable compared to other sectors and remote work/learning has driven stronger PC volume and a greater focus on security for the year. “Overall information and communications technology (ICT) spending is expected to have a 5% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2024. In terms of total IT spending, we are seeing a more shallow V-shaped drop this year. Total IT spending will drop to about 1% growth this year, but this is far stronger than the 3% decline that was expected earlier

When 2020 started, no one could predict the pandemic would envelop the world for months after. In fact, here we are nearing the end of the year, and Covid-19 is still very much around, wreaking havoc on world markets and healthcare systems. During this period, many businesses are being forced to pivot and change, from wearing masks to implementing mandatory work-from-home policies. To put it succinctly, it doesn’t show any signs of changing anytime soon. One area that many are looking at with enterprise training is how virtual reality (VR) is impacting businesses and making training safer and more immersive at the same time.
VR is nothing new and has been prevalent in our society for almost half a decade now. Still, only in the past few
