Quote of the Week: Dean Kamen Founder, DEKA Research and Development

April 24, 2015

Never before have we needed to have more incentive for people to innovate, for people to take risks and the most powerful government piece of incentivizing people to take risks and to create new things, whether it's curing disease or solving environmental problems or energy problems. The only part that the government can hold out as an enormous incentive for people to risk their time, their energy, their reputation and their money is to say to them, share it with the world under the condition that for a limited time, as the Constitution said, we will promise you, we will give you exclusive right to your property. That's article 1 section 8 of the Constitution. It works and we've got to strengthen it now more than ever before, not undermine it.
