Obama Pledges 3%+ of GDP—as Much as Defense Spending—to Scientific Research – obama

This morning, Obama made a huge pledge to focus more money on scientific research—more than the US spent during the space race. In fact, it’s almost as much as we spend on defense.

I believe it is not in our American character to follow—but to lead. And it is time for us to lead once again. I am here today to set this goal: we will devote more than three percent of our GDP to research and development… This represents the largest commitment to scientific research and innovation in American history.
