ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the funding of the U.S. government on research and development (R&D). She seconded the statement of U.S. President Barack Obama that the U.S. should focus on R&D and job creation in his State of the Union address in January 2011. She argues that the U.S. economy may be superceded by China in 2017 due to the difference in R&D funding. She adds that the financial support for U.S. researchers' education has slower growth rate than of developing countries.
