Kresl is the American member of the team of scholars (coordinated by Giuseppe Russo) who wrote the Centro Einaudi research study on innovation policies and innovative territorial systems conducted as part of the Fondazione CRT’s ‘Progetto Alfieri’. After outlining the various aspects of innovation, Kresl describes his vision of the US system: how it works, the main institutions involved, strengths and weaknesses. In his view, the Americans have achieved excellent results to date in the field of innovation; this is because they are supporters and practitioners of the Anglo-Saxon model, which is: 1) market-based; 2) founded on initiative and the decision-making process of the private sector or the ‘actors’ of innovation; 3) capable of supplying infrastructure that helps create an innovative milieu; 4) capable of determining a ‘fiscal environment’ favourable to risk assumption and venture capital investment. Today changes are in store for the United States that could begin to reduce the effectiveness and results of innovation: if the federal government continues to remove substantial funding from scientific and technological research to finance further tax cuts and/or military projects, seeing that the environment is no longer congenial, the research community might simply move elsewhere.
