ITIF President Rob Atkinson asks in his recent Huffington Post article what will Obamanomics look like? That is to say, in what direction with America’s President-elect lead the nation’s economy? The three contenders are Rubinomics, with its focus on deficit reductions and national savings, Neo-Keynesian, emphasizing social policy such as universal health care and tax cuts for lower and middle class Americans, or Innovation Economics that argues growth is, and always has been, a function of innovation and a robust R&D tax credit along with public-private partnerships are the tools needed to spur such innovation.
