Public Sector Entrepreneurship

This chapter argues that the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 (along with the Advanced Technology Program [ATP] that it created) is an example of public sector entrepreneurship, albeit a short-lived one. The chapter begins with a description of the legislative history of the Act, before turning to the reasons for its relatively short duration. Despite its short life, the Act still represents an example of public sector entrepreneurship. After explaining why that is, based on the conceptual structure developed in Chapter 3, the chapter concludes with an analysis of the impact and effectiveness of the Act and an example of ATP-funded research.
