Fear is the biggest obstacle to Americans embracing innovation, according to a preliminary report issued Friday by the National Innovation Initiative. Other obstacles include
-- inadequate infrastructure,
-- talent and
-- skills as well as
-- how resources are invested and used, according to the report.
Americans must resist "impulses to become centralized, inward-focused or risk-averse," the report states. "We know that we can't preserve our way of life or generate new jobs or win the war on terror or lead the world by playing defense."
