2011 State of the Union l “The world has changed. In a single generation, revolutions in technology have transformed the way we live, work and do business. Today, just about any company can set up shop, hire workers, and sell their products wherever there’s an Internet connection.” l “Nations like China and India realized that with some changes of their own, they could compete in this new world. And so they started educating their children earlier and longer, with greater emphasis on math and science. They’re investing in research and new technologies. ” l “The competition for jobs is real. But this shouldn’t discourage us. It should challenge us. Remember America still has the largest, most prosperous economy in the world. No country has more successful companies, or grants more patents to inventors and entrepreneurs. We’re the home to the world’s best colleges and universities, where more students come to study than any place on Earth.”

2011 State of the Union (cont) l “The future is ours to win. But to get there, we can’t just stand still. As Robert Kennedy told us, “The future is not a gift. It is an achievement.” Sustaining the American Dream has never been about standing pat. It has required each generation to sacrifice, and struggle, and meet the demands of a new age. l “And now it’s our turn. We know what it takes to compete for the jobs and industries of our time. We need to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world.

2011 State of the Union (cont) l Through investing in innovation we create the jobs of the future; through investing in education we prepare our citizens to fill these jobs; and through building the infrastructure for a knowledge-based economy, we assure prosperity and security for our nation. l Key to the achievement of all three of these goals is the American research university , which through its research it creates the new knowledge key to innovation; through its educational programs, particularly at the graduate and professional level, it creates the knowledge workers and entrepreneurs capable of applying innovation to create economic value; and through its development and deployment of advanced infrastructure such as information and communications technology, it provides the foundation for the knowledge economy.
