The Third Wave: Innovation and Strategic Military Capacity in the Future
- Author(s): COWHEY, Peter
- et al.
This brief examines the capacity of China to challenge America as a technology innovator. It assumes that the balance of innovation capacity matters for strategic strength in the long haul. Absent a fuller analysis of this assumption, this brief makes some ad hoc observations about the possible relationship. The analysis treats innovation as the successful commercialization (or strategic military application) of a technology change.
