This chapter summarizes the arguments from the previous chapters regarding the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980, the Stevenson-Wydler Act of 1980, the R&E Tax Credit of 1981, the Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982, the National Cooperative Research Act of 1984, and the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988. The chapter claims that the adoption of these policies was the result of groundwork laid by Vannevar Bush, and particularly his report Science–The Endless Frontier, which lays out his vision for the future of scientific research after World War II. In support of this claim, the chapter describes the relationship between the conceptual underpinnings of the technology and innovation polices examined in the previous chapters and Bush’s report.
