Title: Is America Falling Off the Flat Earth?
Url: https://www.nap.edu/catalog/12021/is-america-falling-off-the-flat-eart...
Creator: Augustine, Norman R.
Publisher: National Academies Press (U.S.)
Description: This website includes a report on U.S. Competitiveness, which is available for download in PDF format. Abstract: "If history teaches any lesson it is that no nation has an inherent right to greatness. Greatness has to be earned and continually re-earned... Only by providing leading-edge human capital and knowledge capital can America continue to maintain a high standard of living - including providing national security - for its citizens."- Norman Augustine This is a compelling report describing risks to America's future economic prosperity and security. The report cites numerous statistics that starkly describe areas in which America is falling behind, and areas in which other nations are moving ahead. The essay draws on congressional testimony and lectures which Augustine has given since the "Rising Storm" report was released.
